Silent Family Poem by Roger Hudson

Silent Family



Click clack click go mum's knitting needles
In rhythms of habit
Eyes fixed on the library book before her
Ears absorbing the comedy show on the radio

Beside her on the settee before the range
Gran crochets and listens
Laughs are rarely loud

At the living room cum dining room table
Spread with school books and paper
Son struggles with complex homework
That will continue when others are in bed

Conversation negligible
The silent family performs the nightly routine
Till supper time, bed time, sleep
