Butler Pennsylvania 52

Calvary Cemetery

At the gravesite on a slope
in frozen winter
waiting for the hearse to arrive

weeping inside, but
on looking up found strength
in glances we cast
at a stubby beech tree
rooted on one foot
with its head thrown back
and with gnarled fingers
was reaching up
to claw at the icy winds.
