Neighbour Hattie

by Richard L. Provencher  
11/14/2011 / Christian Living

Her man is ailing, heart problems
they say, now she's the
one carrying 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.

She's proud of her work
best lady
in town for washing
and mending.

"Look at young Bill's green socks"
says Hattie, "picked
them out myself. See Nancy's pretty
towels, a wedding present
two years gone by."

Yes, Hattie's pleased with her work
gray hair tossing
in the wind. Can't talk through a
mouthful of clothespins, her
smile says it all.
