The shocking sad news came slowly at first,
then fast in a blast as we feared the worst.
For just as we feared
bad omens had reared
and we wondered if it was rehearsed.

M's staid hubby John
had stayed, lingered on
stating she'd left her cellphone and purse;
and now she was gone
bloodhounds sniffed all the lawn
but the outcome was looking accursed.

Her good name don't besmirch
Four days came of the search
Empty-handed, police were not gloating;
when down in the water
they finally got her
Indeed, she had turned up dead, floating.

Miss you, M!
