VINTAGE LETTERS



mail was valuable way back then
in the days of grandfather’s youth
letters were the way to send friends
messages, money, and kind words.

his mother wrote him at college,
mail was valuable way back then.
words of encouragement arrived,
fine crafted letters full of love

weather updates, daily routines
anecdotes from a place called home.
mail was valuable way back then,
she assured him Father was proud.

in the basement, letters kept for
a lifetime, unshared memories.
I read them now, decades later-
mail was valuable way back then.
