Nostalgia (a poem)

NOSTALGIA by Patricia Crandall

A rouged French lady sits in an embroidered parlor waiting for the boy to finish chores in the barn. He enters the room dusting off pants with blackened hands. The worn brown couch accepts his tired body now eager for a mid-day replenishment. He feasts on chocolate layer cake and creamy cold milk. Grandma's smile is all he needs to see as he stretches a lean body out to rest. Her love is strength and rainbows.
