The lonely swing

This swing has such an
interesting story having
come from a house ready
to be razed in Charlotte, NC.
I can only imagine the moments
spent by the lovely couple
who first bought it back in
the 40's or 50's.
A city lot, enormous trees,
beautiful flowers, well pruned
hedges, garden paths,
friendly neighbors, private
fenced yard with the whole
world yet to be discovered.
Then suddenly, those years
have passed them by and
it all disappeared into the past...
their house, their family,
their garden.
I think that I will keep this
"lonely swing"
and the memories that only
I can imagine or perhaps
create lovely new ones.
