Ode to Mama

by Cathy Collura
(Bayshore, New York USA)

Short in height, tall in stature


Wrinkly, gray-haired, a twinkle in her eye

Adorable to see.

Wisdom permeated her

Correcting grammar was her game.

School ended at Eighth grade

She was the smartest woman I know.

No one could replace her

Oh, I miss her so.

One more hug, one more dance

If only I had one more chance.
