I am from ironing hankerchiefs and pillow cases, watching Captain Kangaroo, cotton fields and lonesome train whistles.
I am from a little white house with a small back porch
and a gravel driveway.
I am from mimosa trees, hoola hoops and
shelling purple hull peas.
I am from swinging on Poppa and Grandma's front porch and
listening to katydids.
I am from laughing and catching lightning bugs in a mason jar.
From Grapette's, Pomac and Kick-a-poo Joy Juice.
I am from Standing On The Promises, Vacation Bible School and
homemade ice cream suppers after church.
I am from blowing kisses to momma with my sister Suz.
I am from old black and white photo's tucked inside an old hardsided suitcase.
I am from generations past.
(WHERE ARE YOU FROM?)
