A poem, "Poinsettias", from the New Yorker, published sometime in late 1980 or early 1981?

I know I can search through the online archives for this, but I have limited access to a computer just now.
Does anyone remember this poem, dealing with the passage of time, and inevitable loss? My family was comforted by it, upon the unexpected and early death of my father during that time period.
I would like to have it now, as my lifelong best friend has just died suddenly. I'm fairly sure the title is "Poinsettias," but I don't remember the author.
Thanks in advance for any help.
