The Chain

September 7, 2017

I wore her locket. 

She bore my mother. 

Two women 

Brighter, stronger, linked closer. Connected, beyond. 

I am proud to be yours

And wear our shared memories like a charm.

In all directions, I will think of you:

at elevenses, when tea comes in a china cup, 

when I pass Paddington, bear hug,

taste limoncello, drink wine at lunch,

when I cook for one or seven or 19,

when I hear the words, 'blether', or 'bonnie' or 'och!'

When I buy a jacket I don't need,

read a romance,

when I travel.

When I am small but fierce, like you.


For my Nani, Betty Haldane Speedie.
