Country Woman

I remember

Her black shawl

Her long skirt

Her hair tied up in a bun

Her face weathered

Her life

One of work

No time to play

Rearing two boys and a girl

On the wages of a cleaner

Putting food on the table

Cleaning the home

She sang away the heartache in

Her heart

As dusk fell and she lit the oil lamp.
