One of my grandmothers painted and wrote poems when she wasn’t busy raising her three children.

This is one of her poems.


Grammy Barnard Poem #3

Melancholy, May 19, 1927

Cold and dark desolation’s arms

            Embrace my heart and sound alarms

Of fearful, loveless days to be endured

            To which my heart of late has become inured.

Where may I flee from these haunting visions

            And from my constant indecisions?

Go I shall, and in my misery hide

            In a lonely forgotten place where I’ll reside,

I’ll think of all the vows men make

            And how quickly too they can forsake.
