I Am From

I am from wooden rocking chairs
from kitchen windows and scented candles
I am from the farm house
and fresh laundry
I am from colored tulips
The weeping willow
whose long gone limbs I remember
as if they were my own.

I am from cabin time and sunshine
from Charlie and Erick
I'm from yelling boys and muddy floors
and from chewing ice

I' m from saying your p's and q's and telling the truth
and May the Wind Blow at Your Back
I'm from Christmas morning panacooken
I'm from Buffalo and Ireland
From Buffy The Underdog
dark and stormy nights
the pink box with plastic pearls
the 2nd drawer
