Winnie’s Reminders

She kept them

Notes to herself

In hen scratch scrawl

On white paper

Stuck to the refrigerator

With apple-shaped magnets

“We are children again”

One said

And every glowing morning

Winnie came to read it

In this way

With each though that Winnie forgot

She gave herself the joy

To be born again

Winnie didn’t mind

Her forgetting at all

For it was in remembering

She received

Her greatest gifts.
