Antique Rocker

Between the tiles and the wall stands a
beautifully cedar carved antique rocking
chair, very unique, labeled and numbered.
It was made in Indiana in the late forties. 
Sturdy and well made the back is carved
in the shape of an hour glass, just begging 
you to sit down in it. I'm too busy in my 
apartment on the computer and have 
no real yard to set it in. The shafts of the legs 
are slightly circular with interesting curves 
that give it good movement. The arms are
circular and carved and attractive being held
in place by two carved stakes. All in all its a
nice piece. Yet, it just sits in the living room.
I should probably give it to an older person
who would like to rock out on the porch.

    I wish I was there to get it. Maybe you should keep it. You never know what it could be worth. I just love antiques, Nice poem and thanks for sharing. Many blessings... Lucilla

    Yes, often we own a piece and it just sits being unused, then again, maybe you should try and sit in it once in a while, it may be needing your presence, to come to life, I've enjoyed your poem tonight Julie, xxx
