Linda Dunnigan – Yesteryears and Yesterday

Spread the love

August 8, 2018

My sister came and stayed awhile

Memories flowed with laughter, smiles.

Blowing cobwebs from our minds

Oh, the memories we did find.

 

Yesteryears mere yesterday

As memories flowed of child’s play.

Kick the can, back yard trapeze,

It all came back in a breeze.

 

Blowing cobwebs from our minds

Oh, the memories we did find!

 

Gulping orange juice down in haste

To hide Cod liver’s nasty taste.

Then out the door, down the hill,

Morning memories with us still.

 

Penny candy, hill top store,

Walks to school and so much more.

Classes out then we did climb

Up the mountain one more time.

 

Blowing cobwebs from our mind,

Oh, the memories we did find!

 

Grandma’s kitchen -special treats

At her table, took  our seat.

Making trips to the coal shed

Kept buckets filled and fires fed.

 

Summer garden, winter’s store,

Vegetables, yet so much more.

In Mason jars, hot water bath

They made the summer bounty last.

 

Blowing cobwebs from our mind,

Oh, the memories we did find!

 

In the valley far below

When train wheels turn, whistles blow.

Cinders settle everywhere

Carried in the steam filled air.

 

Wringer washers and clothes lines

Spoke of a much simpler time.

Oh, the memories we did find,

blowing cobwebs from our minds.

 

When my sister came to visit.
