The Question
by Elena  Klein

Does memory endure in heaven's space?
Does Dante yet recall his lady's grace,
his Beatrice?  Does paradise erase
from Pertarch's eyes, his Laura's face?
Or Eloise remember Abelard's embrace?
In heaven, does that earthly love then die
or spirit speak to spirit there on high?

My fingers draw the contour of a face
and trace the memory of a lover there.
Will I be recognized if when and where
we meet in that rarer atmosphere?
Does memory endure in heaven's space?
