Stella remembered doesn’t move,

as if my mind, storing up sight,

made of it something like pressed flowers.

I used to look at her day and night when she was a baby,

not to lose anything through the sieve of hours

Now I am ready to barter years of photographs for a memory

showing her turning towards me
