The Matriarch At Prayer - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

A great grandmother genuflects
Before the altar and reflects.
On different stages of her life.
Alternating peace and strife.

A happy child hood followed by
And even now she wonders why
The turbulence of teen age years.
Temper tantrums and hot tears.

But she matured as all must do.
And looking back she can review.
Her teen age angsts quite differently
She's wiser than she used to be.

She is content to know that she
Can still pray for her family.
