I’m feeling kind of nostalgic
looking out over my lavender
spikes memories of scented
handkerchiefs, lace trimmed,
dainty florals, kept up your sleeve
for fragrance and need.
Lavender is old-fashioned
just as you were. A lady,
when that word meant something,
gentle, kind, proper with a spine of steel.
The thin stalks swaying in the breeze,
whisper your name, lovely Cora.
