Gretchen's Grave

Behind the shed
Behind the swing
Behind the lilac bush
Near the rosebush
Next to the wheelbarrow where she and her sister were born
and spent the first weeks of their lives
Under the grass where she and her sister would play
Under the stones that I removed with so much effort
And maybe, somewhere with her mother
That's where Gretchen is
