Grandma's Room - Poem by valerie bellefleur

Up creaky flight of narrow stairs
Into a room thick with nostalgia

Scent of old wartime forgotten perfumes
Wrought iron bed with heirloom spread

Velvet pillows wtih embroidered Niagara Falls
Yellowed photos of Grandpa standing in garden

Children in pewter frames long grown
Smile from a distant past

Dresser of dark wood with scratched mirror
Where lace doillies sit on dust

Silver hair brush set and glass decanters
China jewellery box from Woolworth's

Morning sun pours through velvet curtain
Dust mites dance on beams

Bedside clock still ticking out the seconds
Of timeless memories
