Interesting headline from the El Paso Herald-Post August 29, 1934
Arnold and Elizabeth 1953
While Elizabeth is on hiatus, I have invited guest writers. This poem is one from her daughter-in-law Dixie Carsey. Who has published her own book of poetry . It describes the first time she met her future in-laws.
She was buoyant!
He was tall.
She was sprite
A gentleman was he, and enjoyed friends, all!
They were both teachers
but who would guess
that I’d be their number one pupil
and I hope I passed the test.
Their years of love and giving
would be gifts that I’d unwrap
and allow me to grow with my own children
with nothing expected back
I met these two individuals
for the first time you see
and it changed the way I saw the world
and even a part of me.
I wanted more of these genuine folks
but amiss I had to head back.
Lucky me I soon married their son
and knew a family I’d never lack.
