What treasures can I find today
As I rummage in the attic up above
What treasures will I find today
Many saved and definitely loved
In the far corner stands a mirror
The black stained glass cannot hide
The image in the background of
A faded gown of a long ago bride
On the side I turn to see before me
The wooden sailboat on the stand
A wonderful hand crafted sailboat
Surely made by an artistic hand
My eyes wander to the corner wall
There an old tattered trunk I see
Filled with loving memories of old
Children's clothes folded carefully
Oh what treasures I have found today
While I rummaged through the place
Oh so many memories of days long ago
A tattered trunk and faded gown of lace.

Just a reminder: I lost all my followers. Pretty please dear friends follow my blog again. With that said I hope you enjoyed rummaging through the attic with me. Until the next time my friends, have a day of blessings.
