Frank E Gibbard Posted May 13, 2009 Share Posted May 13, 2009 A simple blue and white oval plate Is symbolic to me of life and fate, Once gathered round it on festive days, A family of seven reflected in its glaze. Four of our number have sadly gone, Our heirloom unbroken still carries on. Modest inheritance cheap crockery piece, Its true value in heritage shall not decrease; Receptacle of sentiment a lifetime's worth, Only earthenware but to me worth the Earth. It rests at present now in the highest space In proper place upon the same old dresser, Until it is handed down once more to grace The day when those of us left can bless her.
