in summerwind

gypsy twin
sister plucked from plains of high old summer
mythic childhood space
one day or three
a school year touched
some stretching slim
young animal's awkward grace
and gilded hair on limb
sun-kindled halo crowned
each on each
sun-burnished tint
a mirror in a mirror

Karen and Carrie, Mary
girls of summer
passed into the reach
of memory's summer garden
tended in age
stroked into relief
in every newborn summer's
griefless grief
