Nine Days – Day Two

You can read the first part of this nine-day poem on a post made yesterday. I hope you will enjoy this entire series.

My Mother’s Book of Hours: Novena

II

From the first drawer we pluck out a little basket, full

Of buttons, beads & even dried-out melon seeds.

I treasure still those bracelets that you made for me,

While Mum, it seems, kept samples of the tatty trinkets

Allison & I created out of seeds

Then painted with our poster paints

In lurid pinks & purples.
