WHAT DO WE SAY?
We heard from my family again,
The first since who knows when…
The kids are all fine,
Each in their line
And sister-in-law writes like a friend.
She and my brother have an empty nest,
Awaiting life’s further test…
She’s home with “the boys,”*
He’s in Illinois
Working on their behest.
Last time I heard from Nate
He had contracting in my state…
But except long weekends
His job depends
On taking opportunities on the plate.
So what can we write to them?
Our separate efforts have been…
And poorly viewed,
But together we’ll manage a spin!
* Nancy writes that “the boys” are two dogs and a cat, at home with her!
