Going back......by Joyce Riley

                                            Poem by Joyce Riley
Flowers on the table,
Guests opening the gate,
Mother with her apron off,                                         
Napkins by each plate,
Butter and a butter knife,
Peas I helped to shell,
Fried chicken on a platter,
Oh, I remember well,
Cousins, aunts and uncles,
Arriving with good wishes,
But, what I remember most of all

the stacks of dirty dishes.
