Granny's Teapot

Blue and white with simple flair
Away from China and Salem chairs
It came to me in '78
surviving college and two small kids
until meeting its end in early '06
when Irie lunged for a snack behind
knocked off counter, crash and goodbye
steeped in memories, Henrietta and sweets
the grandfather clock and Granny
bright eyes, white curly hair, radiant smile
Only the teapot's tangible top remains
to stir the spirits and serve the past
