“Robert” is the consequence of listening to a friend talk about missing his wife while we were on a long term assignment together on the East Coast and then shortly thereafter mindfully observing a housekeeper as she moved about the quarters we had rented at the location. I suspect, under one name or another, there are still a few Roberts around.
Thanks for reading.
The quality of this site goes up and up....YOU are one of the reasons why. This poem, such common things shown with such tenderness and sensitivity to the real meaning in what too easily becomes mundane....simply excellent.
