inherent age in heritage by Jesse Printer Friendly

Father

is a man with calloused hands

practiced and precise

whose pen can ink the artists lines

whose beauty he denies

Father knows that pen and ink

cannot be put to mouth

They're colored words his mother heard

it's taken years to sweat them out


Mother

once the gifted bell

all full of wit and spite

sits silent in God's waiting room

He's taken more from her than any might

Now mother's memory's washed and thin

but something still for keeping

til time itself begins to knell

and space a hollow weeping well.
