I remember

Written by: Demeter Edwards

This time of season, brings back joy to my ears
I can remember when Aunt Ivy cried her heart in tears
days when she could not bear 
months when hungry people hold their belly in fear
I remember one moment when this tree did not reap
causing many hungry hearts to leap
I remember one day, when an old lady cried, 
angry 
that her mouth was dried 
tears fell to the ground 
searching for food to be found.
