MY IRISH GRANDMOTHER

Raven hair piled high.
Eyes like my mothers.
A small nose like mine.
Her mouth I have too.

A white blouse with velvet
trim.
A long black skirt.
She is seated on a curved seat
With a background of trees
And flowers.

She was a beauty that’s
for sure,
My Irish grandmother.
I look at her photo.
She died before I was born
So we didn’t meet.
Pity………
