Thanks to fellow blogger Ernest Dempsey for publishing my poem, inspired by a memorable summer with my grandparents.


“Nine in a crib, oh boy,”

Grammy says, gazing at her hand.

“You wouldn’t know a crib from a rattlesnake,” Granddad quips.

“Now sir, I’ve raised three children.

I should know what a crib is.”

Read the rest on Recovering the Self.
