Pandora Sweater - a poem for my Mother

Plaid wool skirt and a Pandora sweater
I begged to get my ears pierced and you said “Let her”
Sitting at the kitchen table, it was comforting, you cooked
I never learned your culinary ways, I should have looked
Especially that banana pudding or the chicken a la king
There were angel food cakes, strawberry short cakes
I loved everything
In my lunch bag a love sandwich, Fritos, and a Little Debbie
The unspoken unconditional love that you fed me
Roberta, Michelle, all your little Pandora sweaters
Sweet kitchen memories. What could be better?

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
