A Poem by Jamie Demetriou

In her final weeks she was given a book, 
Signs of Spring
I thought what an odd title to give a 
dying Woman
Then I thought the signs of spring must 
equate to rebirth
She was headed to her season upon the
completion of the book
One by one till all chapters were done her
story came to its end
I have not thought of this book for
decades
Until this little bird
She reminded me of her, of them
Our cycles and our seasons, our signs of 
spring
