meadowlarks hello
repeated from now to then
-born in prairie sigh

captured dream of summer fun
rolling grassland setting sun

Grandma’s garlic press
Cherished relic of her life
Pesto’s final touch

Fragrant memories captured then
Bit of spices she’d put in

When the forests are spooky
He strolls in delight

Miseries to all that tread
When persons dare walk with dead
