Little glass jars from foot-hilled farms,
not so far from home

Dust lay still on the window sill,
the air is still as stone

The daughters dove
perched above
the ivory crested hollow

The amber glow
from old panes show,
their garden sanctuary

Afternoon tea on a black moonless night
his failing eyes gray and pine for the light
Perhaps in the morning he’ll regain our sight

The ground here is marred by the heel of your boot
The path growing in on the spring blossoms bloom

Your honey hair puddles on your shoulders so fair
The window’s lonely with two empty chairs

We'll hold like the oak that freckles this land
Token of gold that embraces your hand.
