Our Little Round Table
We had a little round table in the corner of our kitchen,
With three chairs and a high chair:
His, mine, our young sonís, and our baby daughterís.
My husband and I sat across from each other,
Our feet bare and entwined beneath the table.
I buttered his bread Ė refreshed his glass Ė and never thought behind or beyond the hour.
It was an inexpensive, wooden table,
The only one at the time we could afford.
Its top was of wood-grained plastic.
Our son sat at it and wrote his school-words,
And I drew my pictures.
My husband balanced our checkbook and paid our bills there, as well.
It was a multi-purpose table.
That table didnít go with us when we moved away.
A long and costly rectangular table took its place,
And beneath it, my husband and I couldnít reach each otherís feet anymore,
And eventually each otherís minds,
And finally each otherís hearts.
We should have kept our little round table.
