'It Takes A Village To Raise A Child'

My red neck friends disdain her
Or hold her in open contempt
But she has given us a truth in a land of cities
It takes a village to raise a child.
So who were: Daisy and Pappy Millet? Don and Esther Urquhart? Ken Gardner and Jean Thompson? Sphen and Danny Loman? Jo Strain, George VanClef and Madeline Maurie?
Who were these people and others who raised me?
(The names that are not enshrined here)
You do not have to even know all their stories
To know their truth
It takes a village or at the very least
A church of great heart to help raise a child.

:) Reflection on Three Robert Frost Poem Dates

If 1912 is the date he burned his boats
Then three poem dates I find of interest
1915 - The Road Not Taken
1920 - Fire and Ice
1923 - Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
My understanding $200 his income
From his first twenty years of writing
Makes me feel ok I'll never earn a penny.

Lesson from Robert Frost’s “Fire and Ice”

Robert Frost has taught me
It is best not to comment on one’s poetry
For when expected apocalypse does not come
A poem well written will still run.

:) Mom Remembered Past Her Death's Anniversary

Four years from death plus a little
I miss our frequent chats
And counsel so wise and full of gift
That death has broken the seal
Of those better conversations
And revealed wisdom that eyes
Of age could far better see than those of youth.
