Poet's Notes about The Poem

actually my wife usually goes to the dining center to pick up and deliver the meals herself. i've just helped a little bit twice while her hand has been bothering her. she's not sure if i am more of a helper or a nuisance. ;)
also, i did see a small piece of green vegetable with the white potato, white vegetable, and white sauce on brown meat? , and brown bread. and there was green? salad i did not see in the container carrying white milk. so the meals are not totally drab. and they are free if the people can't afford them or they are 'too cheap' to make the suggested donation per meal. my mother never got 'meals on wheels', but she got moved into an 'assisted living' home for the last few years of her life and the cooking and serving was done for her.

    Luckily our world has people like your wife then! And of course, with you in it, everything has more yellow and pink (by those colors, I mean happiness and cheer; though I'm not sure why I added 'pink')
    How can you tease your wife? She sounds good to me! : P (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
