More lines from a thank you note…

Thanks for the not so empty box left behind by dad
and lost until today for sister’s uniform neatly folded there
thanks also for his worn leather harnesses
and for one saddle empty since his departure
for all his photographs bound in books
thanks for Paul McCartney singing Hey Jude
for Hyde Park’s thousands of waving singers
thanks for dad driving us to coldwater while we sing
‘mr froggy went a courting’

Many thanks
