Oh, I love that last line!

Reminds me of Southern aunties, including their use of words.

I did listen three times @Jane King. Truly inspires, I would like framed and hung or in print so I can self evaluate from time to time.
Amazing poem. The rhythm and rhymes are are at once simple and complex. The choice of words are exact. There is an immediacy of both present and past in the expressions the poem makes. A good poem requires many visits. This one beckons.
