SOME MORE FAMILY STORIES recited

TRUE GRIT
He like a drink
did granpa  Shreeve
Sergeant stripes stayed on
his sleeve- Victorian born with
buckled belt ,boots,trousers braced;
strong silent,with twirled of moustache;
rigid of back,upright no ceremony allowed-
a legacy faded sepia grey in memory
	GRANPA
He loves action,with few words
by example,his guidance heard,
a barnabas,he unfolds
encouragment,to be bold;
Strong-minded,solid some say,
stability,day-by-day,
reliability,his creed
to satisfy,family need;
Each day stepping outside the box
what you see,is what you get,
once encountered,none forget,
a boy,beneath it all
aged now,but standing tall.

A MOTHER’S LOVE
She lives her love day by day
with all that is so feminine,
a touch, kiss or knowing look,
concern, red-lettered in her book;
Particular to detail self-sacrifice 
a routine,as she walks the extra mile,
ever ready with a smile;The days 
news eager to hear,her wise counsel,
stills a fear as open arms her love brings
near,a warmth to dry a child's tear
ready to give herself,time and again
so soft and beautiful and feminine
