What we know

Only daughter of Jenny and Peter Wringle, she was 11 when her family left Connecticut to follow the gold rush into Colorado. She succumbed to the ague1 shortly after reaching Marble Springs


On their long journey
West, they kept
sinking1 into the tall
sunburnt grasses.

Hazel played a game
with the buffalo bones
whose whitened wholeness
bleached the grasses around them.

This one is Charley, that one is Marley
Bill Bennett Bailey, Mary Jenkins Railey

And the bones grasped
at the sounds,
soaking in the names
that Hazel left behind.
