Lizzie’s Charm Bracelet

My grandmother had a bracelet

heavy with charms

one for each grandchild.

Whenever she moved her wrist,

the weight of her descendants,

the children of her children,

made a sweet tinkling sound.

 

I saw my cousins at Thanksgiving,

lining long tables at Frankenmuth,

chicken and turkey on platters,

mashed potatoes and dressing heaped in bowls.

We were surrounded by German kitsch.

I saw them again at Christmas

gobbling Grandma’s frosted cookies.

 

I moved away from home and so did they.

Family trips to Mississippi and Washington

ceased. We grew up and away.

Some years we come together—

summer reunions at the lake,

wakes for mom and my favorite aunts,

a 90th birthday for Uncle Jimmy, the best, the last.

 Grandma Lizzie has long passed

and Mom and her sisters, Patsy, Isabel, and Jane,

brothers, Robert and Tommy as well.

My cousins remain,

each linked by a common chain.

We are family we declare—

we are the gems.
