Sarah Dickenson Snyder

At Home

September then
and she missed them—
a daughter to love
to cook for, a son
to follow up a mountain—
her shut-eyes imagining
their palm-sized hearts,
how they once beat inside.

Sarah Dickenson Snyder has three poetry collections, The Human Contract, Notes from a Nomad (nominated for the Massachusetts Book Awards 2018), and With a Polaroid Camera (2019).
