Dear Granma Em,

PC: Gwen Meharg,

i want you to know i kept
your letters about
stork eggs ….when
you flew to
heaven … 

i know
where you left your bumblebee whistle
and honey nest kipfels.

i still visit our for girl’s only girl forts gingerbread castles in your cursive princess letters from yesterday’s mail

and I look forward to that Easter when your great granddaughters and I will dip stork egg songs  in sweet Sephardic tea and smile at you over angel cakes

til that Easter,

we hold you in the cursive of our hearts

as always,

your princess,
