Karen Chase Poems

Before She Died

by Karen Chase

‘Before She Died’ by Karen Chase is a poem about how someone’s death, or impending death, changes the way that one understands the world. 

When I look at the sky now, I look at it for you.

As if with enough attention, I could take it in for you.

With all the leaves gone almost from

the trees, I did not walk briskly through the field.
