She relishes many memories
Of her quaint little country home
Young and happy, at the dawn of life
Before a tragedy caused her to roam
She recalls bad times as being good
Although commodities were few
You did the best with what you had
Repair the old, instead of buying new
Modern days brought many things
Luxuries and gadgets galore
Digital items may be found
Alongside - an old country store
How to relate to this diversity
Is sometimes quite a task
Does modern technology satisfy
Or do old memories, it tends to mask?
Many of her conversations
Were referenced to "the old homeplace"
As a ripe old age, she did attain
This one memory, time did not erase
Colan L. Hiatt’s ultimate prayer and desire is that any and all poetic writings that he endeavors to present, would depict Christ as "the answer" to life's problems. May they offer hope and encouragement to pilgrims along the road of life.
