When I Think of You

A Poem by Mary Ellen Ziegler

When I think of you
all I can think of are the first lines of poems
Listen to the lunch bell ring
Dilly Dilly

Visitors welcome
The rain was everything – quenching our thirst
We were laughing monkeys – with nothing better to do
We have no choice but to carry on

Should I die mysteriously
Let it be here – that you remember me
Is anyone taking the train?
Here’s what you do

In case of emergency
call Ashley the Bee Keeper
Don’t forget to breathe – Hello
Like portrait painting, reserved parking, cadmium red.
