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?
