apologizing as he coughed.
He is sick...
Told him to go back home
replied he needed the money
told him I would pay him anyway.
He stayed a short time
and once again the leaves were blown
from around the cottage and fire pit area.
The old rocking chair with the finish worn
off of arms was brought downstairs.
from guest bedroom.
Put it in front of windows where the sun streams
in during the winter. I can sit, rock and dream.
The rocking chair 50 years old and all of
my babies were rocked in it until they were
to big to sit in my lap.
Old friend so pleased to have you near
kept thinking of this but did not want to
block the glass door and I have enjoyed
the open space.
Now time my old rocking chair
to enjoy you - once again
