Phillip Coffey - The Paved Road Mission

Paved Road Mission - By Phillip Coffey

For years 'mud on my shoes, mud on my car; dust be so thick
in my throat, dust in my eyes, nose and clothes. Sure would
be nice to have black-topped roads by my house. Occasionally
Uncle Ural who lived next door would have oil placed on the road
in front of his house and business. His business was Keltner General store.

About 1966 my Dad (Elroy), Uncle Ural, Reverend R.D. Humphery and state
Senator Thomas "Buck" Watson went on a "Paved Road Mission".

Poetry by Robert Stone: Would that I knew

A sonnet for the birthday of Clara Elizabeth Ellis (1932-2015)
By Robert Stone, 11 February 2023

Would that I knew the songs you loved to hear,
the puzzles that you worked, the books you read,
instructions that were clear and those unclear,
the times all went as planned, the times misled.

Would that I knew the paths you loved to walk,
tne ease of level and the test of steep,
most pleasant when companion joined to talk
of good that brings rejoice, of sorrow weep.

Would that I knew the things you loved to make,
perhaps cross-stitch or knitting or crochet,
perhaps housekeeping or desire to bake
uncommon treats to mark a common day.

Would that I knew the stories you once told,
now pecious memories loves safely hold.
More Sonnets for the birthday of Clara Elizabeth Ellis
