A RICH DECOR

My mother's house
was decorated with
old and priceless things:
rocking chairs
antique high-poster beds
chenille bedspreads
embroidered pillow cases
and dresser scarves
handmade quilts and quilting frames
crocheted doilies
hand-knit shawls
sun bonnets
hand-made cotton-stuffed dolls
pedal sewing machines
flour-sack curtains
kerosene lamps
battery radios
oil-cloth table covers
eating tables with benches
ice boxes and blocks of ice
milk buckets
churns and churn dashers
canning cookers
Mason jars
wash pans and dish pans
water buckets and dippers
wood-burning stoves
fireplaces --
and love.
