As birds flew away

This poem written about a year ago was posted last January and has now getting another airing,

Demented woman
Still crying by the graveside
Her spouse stays silent

Birds pay her no mind
Swooping and pecking around
While she weeps alone

Widow unaware
The gravedigger's daughter watched
From father's tool shed

Her raven hair shone
She waiting for her boyfriend
In the setting sun

Whistling as he walked
Young man's hand held a present
As birds flew away
