"Aide Memoir"

Stones that tumble round down the streambed,
the press and surge of water, its spill and splash
around them, flecks of quartz and mica fired ice-brilliant
by the sun, the shift and shimmer of the Hyades
on the surface at night -- from time to time to remember
all those things for which death holds no mandate.
