A Treat for Your Heart

Our family in the library
Our family in the library, Fargo, Georgia, 1928

Daddy read to us from the Rubiyat, Kipling, Hiawatha, Evangeline and other poetry. The chilling irony of the Ballad of Reading Gaol filled me with a terrible fear, "For every man kills the thing that he most loves".  I pondered on it for years and observed how people loved each other.

The snippet of a poem:

"They've poisoned the wine on my table,
" They've poisoned the bread on my plate;
" Some with their love, God help me!
" And others with their hate."

...reminded me how destructive possessive love can be.  I saw our parents love freely and without demands, with utter trust.   They were my models, and a good thing, for neither Ed nor I could have tolerated possessive of demanding or selfish love.
