A Once Found Object


She was a gentle and careful woman

and when she'd found something so fragile

she had taken it, 

carefully and gently,

and tended to it,

patiently and lovingly.

And then,

returning to where it had first attracted her,

repaired where she could repair,

and strengthened where she could strengthen,

she replaced, carefully and tenderly,

a better thing than that she'd found.

    This is a marvelous poem, Red. It makes me wonder about the source of its inspiration! I read Delysia's remark below and was mystified!

    Awwww, Red. I'm misty-eyed on this one. 17 is as wide and as long as a lifetime; 13 no less. I'm rooting for you - and also crying for you, my friend. Licia :)
