THE NIGHT THE SNOW SPARKLED FOR SARAH MAJORAS & MR. PEEPERS

Rate: 2 Flag

2065 

The snow sparkled

under the full moon

the night she disappeared

as we walked in the moonlight

happy with wine on our anniversary

She crossed the bridge

and lost her life

Her body submerged in the Canal

where we walked, hand in hand

Mr. Peepers, a most friendly cat,

died two days before

He always followed us on the towpath

along the Canal

He was only six, but had a bad heart

We gave our hearts to each other

forty-nine years ago

Who's to say

why some live and others die

The canal path shines

with fierce beauty in Winter

But the ice can be treacherous

The murky water holds a secret

Only the full moon knows

[ Sarah Majoras disappeared while walking home crossing the bridge from New Hope to Lambertville, on Sunday, January 27th.  Her body was later found in the Canal near Ferry Street.  Her death remains a mystery.  Mr. Peepers died from congestive heart failure on January 24th.  He was beloved by all who walked the towpath.]

I hope the last thing she saw was the snow, sparkling in the moonlight and that she thought it was beautiful.
This is so sad, especially set against your anniversary as you celebrated your lives.
Yes, Margaret and Onislandtime, it is heartbreaking, but unfortunately part of the vicissitudes of life.
