Lost in France ©

Stella
Fife, Scotland
2005

A faded photograph
A familiar street
Eyes right to a man

Found in a drawer
In her house clearance
It’s too late to ask

But there on the back
In faint blue ink
“He was lost in France”

I see by the edges
Worn by her hand
I had chanced on treasure

No need to pry
Or ask those left
Enough to be aware
