I love this poem. You touch on so many different aspects and emotions.
“Memory takes a lot of poetic license. It omits some details; others are exaggerated, according to the emotional value of the articles it touches, for memory is seated predominantly in the heart. The interior is therefore rather dim and poetic.”~ Tennessee Williams, “The Glass Menagerie”, Scene One, 1945.
“Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.”~ From the television show “The Wonder Years”.
