Souvenir

Souvenir

Just a rainy day or two
In a windy tower,
That was all I had of you-
Saving half an hour.

Marred by greeting passing groups
In a cinder walk,
Near some naked blackberry hoops
Dim with purple chalk.
I remember three or four
Things you said in spite,
And an ugly coat you wore,
Plaided black and white.

Just a rainy day or two
And a bitter word.
Why do I remember you
As a singing bird?



Poem Souvenir - Edna St Vincent Millay
