Lena and Jacob @ their 50th Wedding Anniversary

Grandma sewed 44 sets of PJ’s each Christmas,
Baked crullers, sauerbraten,
Sat enthroned in hassock-ed chairs,
Reigning o’er progeny’s den.

Baked crullers, sauerbraten,
Offered quarters for allowance,
Cooking lessons, Ed Sullivan’s TV dance.

Sat enthroned in hassock-ed chairs
Upholstered comfort, doilied arms,
Sweet kitchen smells, soft balms.

Reigning o’er progeny’s den:
Nodding, dignity conferred
On all her brood, her herd.

Pattern #46 Go home Have Babies (Every Mustang’s Dream)

Spirit

Spirit was a mustang
Wild and fast his flight;
Galloped ’til a stallion
Led the herd each night.

Wild and fast his flight;
“Til Calvary made him fight
For freedom and his rights.

Galloped ’til a stallion
Rode his muscles raw;
Heaved his breath: neighed his jaw.

Led the herd each night;
Guarded them from foes
As every mustang knows.

I showed my 4 year old grand daughter the DVD of “Spirit”.
At the finish, she asked:”Can they go home now and have babies?”
She discerned what mattered, even for a horse.
