Ribbon-tied love letters
    May start memories­
And baby shoes and albums,
    But so can things like these:
A silly hat
    Slanted your way;
In another voice,
    Things you used to say;
A telephone bell
    That doesn't mean you;
The crossword puzzles
    We liked to do;
Drugstore lights
    And a snowy street;
The corner where
    We used to meet. . .
No, memories are not just things
    That happened" 'way back when" ­
They're anything that stirs your heart
    And tears it wide again!
