SECOND POT

I should have listened when you talked

of growing up on the farm in Acushnet

and of all that meant to you.

 

I should have listened when you told

your tales from the CCC

and of all the exciting things you did.

 

I should have listened to your stories

of how you earned what little money you could

when money was so scarce.

 

I should have paid attention

when you wanted to show me how to fix a car

and tell me of your years as a mechanic.

 

I should have paid attention

when you told me how to hoe a row

and properly plant string beans.

 

I should have listened when you told me

what it took to be a man

of character, principles and integrity.

 

I should have listened more closely

to your dreams and hopes for the future…

and for me.
