THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Making Arrangements” by David Keplinger: purses, attic, dusty, pass, rosary, shoes, tissues, window, stream, go, bags, say

Dusty piano in the attic
Together with old shoes, some bags and toys
They say my great aunt Matilda used to play well
With flare and sometimes dramatic

Dramatic as the water went
Down the stream as the train passed by
Outside the window daffodils and tulips bloomed
My aunt in concert she frequent

Frequent and well dressed with purses
She loved going to church with rosary
Wrapped with fine tissues this old wooden rosary
My aunt played with all the verses

Verses and other things rusty
Being in the attic for a long time
No longer needed, no longer useful to all
This worn out piano so dusty*
