Where I’m From  - by George Ella Lyon

"I am from clothespins,from Clorox and carbon tetrachloride.I am from the dirt under the back porch. (Black, glisteningit tasted like beets.)

I am from the forsythia bush,the Dutch elmwhose long gone limbs I rememberas if they were my own.

I’m from fudge and eyeglasses,from Imogene and Alafair.

I’m from the know-it-alls and the pass-it-ons,from perk up and pipe down.

I’m from He restoreth my soul with a cottonball lamb and ten verses I can say myself.

I’m from Artemus and Billie’s Branch,fried corn and strong coffee.

From the finger my grandfather lost to the auger the eye my father shut to keep his sight. Under my bed was a dress boxspilling old pictures,a sift of lost facesto drift beneath my dreams.

I am from those moments– snapped before I budded– leaf-fall from the family tree."
