Her man is ailing, heart problems
they say, now she
carries the flag
taking in washing's her thing--
a wind freshens up her line
friend Sally's skirt flaps
in the breeze,
John's pants torn yesterday
in the woods
Hattie's proud of her work,
in town for washing
Look, young Bill's green socks,
says Grandma picked
them out. And notice Nancy's pretty
towels, a wedding present
two years gone by--
Hattie's pleased with her work
gray hair tossing
in the wind. Can't talk now
through a mouthful of clothespins, her
smile says it all
something special in her heart,
friends say "God's love."
