Poem for Mother, Poem for Dad

 
They weren’t talking at all, back then.
Deep in that house, conceiving their dwarfs,
they weren't talking at all, back then.
 
And they’re not talking at all, right now.
Still in that house, rearing their dwarfs,
they're not talking at all, right now.
 
And they won’t be talking again.
When the dwarfs break out they’ll stay in that house,
not moving, not talking again.

    This really is quite a sad state of affairs, Donal. It's too bad they were unable to resolve their differences. My own mother used to "nag" my father constantly and all he ever said in response was, "Yes, dear." I pray that our parents have found peace in heaven. Best wishes, Carolyn
