Poem from Mom "Sinking Down"

June 28, 2009

Sinking Down

sinking down
into the soft gray
glove covered hands
that are polishing
the solid sterling
silver tray
tap dancing on the
mossed granite graves
that echo the names
so carefully etched
clapping hands reaching
for us helping us
keep time
Five Foot Two
Eyes of Blue and
Ain’t She Sweet
See Her Coming
Down the Street
mom at the piano
playing the music
we danced to
on her etched name
