Poetic Thursday: The Milk Man

Welcome to another ‘issue’ of Poetic Thursday with Pam, Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats.

This is the nostalgic photo they provided for our inspiration this week:

And  here’s my poem:

The Milk Man

For those folks who lived in the city,
a milk man made daily deliveries.

That’s hard to imagine for a country girl like myself;
we bought our milk from a grocery store shelf.

He greeted everyone as he made his rounds;
and probably knew all the gossip about town.

Sometimes, there was a bonus  for stopping by:
a  slice of nice, warm cherry pie.

It’s nice to look back on such an idyllic time;
smiles, good manners and no worries about crime.

Did you ever have home delivery of milk?
