Scarlet Is More Red Than Red

Tess at two, in 1958.

Scarlet is More Red Than Red

Just beyond
the summer kitchen

down the hall
and to the right

past the prints
of children and roses

is a darker, quiet room
ripe with passion

and woodsmoke
where I bloom

brighter than fire
in wool socks knit

loose from other years
ankle deep in October
