Two poems from Unsweet Dreams by Anne Le Marquand Hartigan (poems from other collections available in Poetry and also here )
 
Fancier

Come little pigeon
Take a message to my love,
Say what I dare not

On your pink leg
Carry my heart.




Forgive Us Our Trespasses

What place do your children give you?

They will allow you to trespass on their
green gardens but wait for you to go
because they tell their friends their secrets
Not you.

You are the beginning for them and they want
you behind but left there.  Doing nothing
in particular but not rocking the boat.
Donít do

Anything outrageous until they are middle-aged
then they wonít mind because it will reflect well
to have an interesting foremother.  Basically itís a
No go area

Parents are increasingly obsolete, dumb dinosaurs
Made to be stuffed
