Two Poems for Mother's Day


.


           Mother

A Canadian girl, she was buried in Texas.
Adopted, she thought maybe she was Dutch,
but she had a Scottish name.
Still, she looked so Irish in the casket.
She had an Irish heart…loved poetry
and horses and song and after all those years
of living, it didn’t mean a thing.
She never did get home, wherever it may have been.
I guess if you’re just buried somewhere in the Earth
it’s basically the same.






           Missing Things

So hard to find, these missing things
…like my keys!
I’ve looked everywhere…not there.
My glasses…gone again!
Can’t even see to find them.
Annoying bother!
And who sang that song? I’ve lost it;
on the tip of my tongue.
The cat’s disappeared
and where’s that damned receipt?
So hard to find all these things
I’m missing.
And where, exactly,
are my mother and father?
