                 for Nancy

History does not repeat herself?
Oh Yes, She does...  She sent me
a sister from other lifetimes, a gift
ungifted in ordinary timelines.

A motherless child needs a sibling 
waif, gifted in place with canvas and paint 
to my paper and ink, to heal in part 
the wounded heart,

and, even more, She settled the score
with best surprise: patrician beauty
in the physical guise, conjoining 
with impunity positive and negative:

AB and O, as in the blood so to speak,
a fortuitous mix unlikely to re-
peat, and destined to meet-- the Giver
not given to common conceit.
