Did I Tell You?
“Did I tell you I live and die?”
“Did you tell me you live and die?”
Had he heard that right?
“I told Momma I live and die.
“And Laura. And the trees.
“Did I tell the geese I live and die?
“I’m gonna tell them!”
She laughs and shares this greatest secret.
The honking of geese chased into the pond
Fades behind my pounding feet on the trail.
