  1. This reminds me of the string wrapped sage brooms my grandmother used. She even swept the yard with them! They were a part of her everyday life and she made them herself. Thanks for the memory.


  2. Reminds me of a certain shed that – given I caused it to have a dubious history – shall have no name. Whatever, this poem triggers past and plays with present – superb!


  3. The rhythm of your first line had me singing the first lines of Sound of Music’s “These are a few of my favorite things.” Your linking your poem to the hat tossing ceremony is a lively leap of imagination.
