Was it a breeze, by Robert Walton

Was it a breeze
by Robert Walton

That nudged my study door,
Or a kitten
Busy making things its own,
Or my imagination’s
Ghosts
All pushing together
To remind me that you died
Last April,
Leaving me with creaks and whispers
Only old houses make?
Was it a kitten,
Or a breeze?
