WINTER 2018-2019


Ruth Sabath Rosenthal


The faded yellow dress
my cousin handed down to me
I was forced to thank her for;

the shiny yellow car
my best friend’s boyfriend had
i never got a ride in.

In the mellow of time

through seasons of daffodils,
wedding gowns & pressed flowers
I found appreciation for yellow —

sunshine & butter
& especially ribbons
tied around trees.
