  1. Chris this really means something to Me as I associate The Chickadee with My Mother who died on March 27, 1993. A Chickadee visited Her Coffin being built by My First Husband Peter on the next day, for Her Cremation We arranged Ourselves. That was one of the greatest feats The Father of My Children ever did for Me.

  2. this poem led me into some quiet moments of contemplation. the first two stanzas ask the reader to imagine the pictures described. the final stanza provides the black cap and then a re-framing of the two previous ones. the slant-rhyme of candle/tangle helps to unify the two disparate images. but i admire that you leave it to the reader to make a leap of cognition.
