Thoughts of Thanks

  • READ POEM
    Thanks also for a Mississippi house
    More lines from a thank you note... Thanks also for a Mississippi house, for each swing and slide and tree tied rope we raced to on arrival. Mostly thanks to her for each embrace, for teaching us to sing. For training us to become less afraid and how to make a karo pecan pie. Thanks for every story of cattle drives, of how daddy became the mule's master. Thanks for each cousin who came near to play. Thanks for a twisting road back to Memphis. Many thanks.

    I walk the woods with daddy, holding baskets of fallen figs; gathered from the ground.
