Back in the day
part of every day attire
Made with flour sacks, muslin or calico
they did more than cover your dress
to this Grandma could attest
From daylight till dark

cooking ,cleaning and more
they helped in some small way
with every single chore
Today we remember them with nostalgia,
-----so sad they've been retired
We write of them in poems & blogs & magazines
because they bring back memories
of a simpler time
They still have a practical use,
Gather vegetables, eggs or a misplaced item.....
to return to it's proper place, later on.

In that long ago place...................
