This is just so lovely.

    for fridays and neighbors

    We think of her hidden in a white dress
    among the folded linens and sachets
    of well kept cupboards, or just out of sight
    sending jellies and notes with no address
    to all the wondering Amherst neighbors.
    Eccentric as New England weather
    the stiff wind of her mind, stinging or gentle,
    blew two half imagined lovers off.
    Yet legend won’t explain the sheer sanity
    of vision, the serious mischief
    of language, the economy of pain.
