After Ros's Commemoration at Witney
The person I'd most have spoken with was you.
But you, for all the attention, were strangely dumb.
What was it the Reverend said?
For Ros, after death, we live in the hearts of others?
But you knew the hollow at the self's heart
That you filled with action and with others,
And sometimes failed to, then knowing it best.
But as others filled your heart
So your death rarefies our core.
True, you will live there, but now in thinner air.
