Ring of Years Gone By

Dinner rings, popular then
Mom saw that I had one on my birthday
Long ago a a thirteen year old
I admired it from then on
And 50 years later
In a drawer it lays
For some unsuspecting girl to hold
For future generations to admire

The Vase

A vase from Grandpa Scott's family
Of the 1850's era 
On the dinning table 
In the middle of the house 
It's familiar placement lay.
Memories of years gone by
Made special as life goes on
Those "golden years" and simpler times 
A home quaint with possessions old and dear
