IN MEMORIAM: MISS J.H.


She was nearly deaf apparently and nearly blind

and ‘mentally deficient’ since infancy –

but could see an old friend to wave

and sound a greeting.

 

She was definitely Thurberesque

with her wall-eyed look and stolid gait.

 

She felt pain and wept.

 

O prisoner, love alone could not release you!
