Memories of Great Grandpa


I miss the way you always aked if I was married
I miss when I aked how much longer, you always replied 14 hours and 15 minutes
I miss the times we all played cards together
I miss how we use to play outside
I miss hearing your stories of growing up in the 1940's
I miss seeing you in your Lazy Boy chair
I miss the whiteness of your hair
I miss having Christmas with everybody there
I miss your stories of the time in Matewan
But most important, I miss not having you here

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
