The Old Songs Play Themselves



Some heard as his mother 
stood over ironing in the 1947
summer of Hatboro, Pa.. 
Some of the songs
in black and white
Saturday evening television circles. 
Some later, songs of folksy pretension.  
The songs persist 
anchors of memory, 
like the crystaline 
seeds of clouds, 
matrons of tribes.
