Image result for pictures of people going swimming at a small creek

Running water in the summer
Go in awashin' with soap
Now the creek is covered 
In overgrowth like a cloak

Staying with my aunt, clever was she
She'd say let's go swimming in the creek
She'd grab some towels, slip in the soap
Then we'd wash so we'd not reek

Loving, happy memories now
As I view her lovely face
Have you ever had an aunt so kind
It seemed she was cloaked in Grace

Now she's gone on to her reward
The trees, bushes now overgrown
Right up to the very creek she owned
How now going in awashin' I long  

In Remembrance Of Aunt Dolly Cochran Morgan

Sheri, She was a special lady. She died such a horrible death from cancer of the plasma of the blood. I think they call it Multiple Myeloma ...There is treatment for it today but back then there wasn't much that could be done. Thanks for your visits to my page. Sara

Susan, My aunt died around 35 years ago but we went by her old home and the creek this week end and these memories came flooding my heart so I wrote this one in honor of her. Thanks for the visit to my page. Sara

This tribute to your dear aunt brought tears as I remember my aunt. We were closer than I was with my mother. We thought so much alike and I miss her dearly. A lovely memory created this beautiful poem Sara. : )

I had a great aunt who I remember that way; it was wondrous going to her home. A lovely sentiment for a favored aunt. Well done.
