REMEMBERING DARK AND SPLENDID 
(Mari Evans, July 16, 1923-March 10, 2017)
 
After a zillion sounds, stone-washed clean;
 
after broadly casting such truths to people;
 
after taming music into measure of mind;
 
after making bronze lyrics of ancient black,
 
you came to return space to origin.
 
You left a stern, eternal  crystal watch.
 
You left warning days vital as nights.
