long ago . . . and today

long ago
and remembered today
my father’s birthday

My father was born in 1915, and I often think of the history he and my mother lived through. His parents came here from Sweden.

A peaceful day here. Routine work around the house.

two poems

we wait and watch
the train go by
in our small town
memories of my
Swedish grandparents

My grandfather worked on the railroad, and I remember my grandmother’s kitchen!

train lights
and late afternoon
grey sky
Autumn begins
