Mom (for Bethany)

She was the best mom.

In hard times, she’d put a Bible under my pillow

so words of comfort mingled with my dreams.

(Fear not, for I bring you tidings of great joy.)


She never let a stranger-child go hungry,

even with that big farm, big family –

drove my father nuts!

It’s a KID, she’d say. 

That was that.
