Tomorrow

A service

At Westminster

The building will serve

The people will be served

With liturgical goodbyes

x

I don’t know what she wrote for

Entry into Poets’ Corner

Maybe nothing

Maybe she’ll only visit there

From time to time

To listen

To the works

Or the squabbles

Among minds

(the laureates she knew

plus others)

x

We may salute her

For her military service

“Princess Auto Mechanic”

And she knew her work

Dear in wartime

x

Or try this—Your Majesty

Elizabeth

We hard knew ye
