Aunt Marion

High atop a tree

The creek looks so far away

Live in the moment

Depression era

Wild spring onions are a treat

Crawdads make fine stew

Momma makes biscuits

Daddy smokes the hogs and fish

Granny says, don’t sass

Learn to sew your clothes

Work the fields to earn your pay

Thank God, you’re alive

She talks of her youth

Grateful for what life taught her

And that she can share
