Mother Loved Books

one night
she was up late
reading
***
I could see
that a house
engulfed in flames
upset her
***
she quickly
doused the cinders
with the chamomile
at her side
***
feeling triumphant
she turned the page
quite pleased
with herself
***
I can attest to the fact
that her good heart
was always
in the right place
at the right time

You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me. ― C.S. Lewis
