Barbara, Christmas 2013

If you put all my joy over all our pots together,
It would not touch how I feel about this cast-iron pot.

Let all my joy from all our pots be plopped together
and it slops around, with room, inside this iron pot.

I never thought I’d see a black utensil packed together
with black lids of iron and be thrilled to feel a pot.

When I’m old we’ll need to lift it’s weight together
or I’ll bend beneath the iron.  But today I waltz this pot.
