Tribute to Our Family Home

by Mama Baer


It's time to sell our family home.
We gave away the garden gnome.
A flood of mem'ries, A to Z,
are everywhere! I look and see

one roof, twelve rooms, the skylight dome.
It's time to sell our family home.
Light bricks, front porch, the carport shop,
the garden . . . there's a sacred stop.

Our mother, widowed now one year,
worked far too hard. It now is clear
it's time to sell our family home.
In tribute, I'll write April poems.

Where parents and five children grew,
it seems to say, "I'll miss you, too.
Hold mem'ries close where'er you roam."
It's time to sell our family home.



NaPoWriMo (April poem/day) Contest! contest entry

My father died in 2020. Our family home proved too much for Mom to keep up with, and the time has come to sell. My siblings and I gathered recently to help prepare the home and yard for the inevitable 'For Sale' sign. A rush of memories filled my heart, just in time for NaPoWriMo.

This song shares my sentiments:

Also, thanks to Roy Owen for educating me about quaterns!
