She sat wearily 
and wide eyed in Pa’s old chair
then sprang to rush out the door
“only just the wind”
Everyday she’s done the same
Three years now since Pa left home

6th place in Rick Parise’s
“Chair in Shadowed Room Contest”

    aaaah, so sad, this one,and how interesting to show it as a child in 1864. Reminds me of LIncoln's death too. Congrats on your win.
