Little Mantlepiece Globe

January 27, 2021

PROMPT: Memory Object

2
I sit upon the mantle, heavy, treasured, old
Been used before, but not like this, my meanings now in bold

The contour of my countries, the smoothness of my seas
the brightness of my brassy frame, my teaching qualities

The young hands slowly touch, they trace, the poke they pry
Whilst being closely watched by an older, wiser eye

Places we can visit, all within our home
The joyful knowledge blooms, so much better than a phone 

The children that look at me, their wonder and their awe
Their hopes of distant travel, once covid is no more

My hope is to show them, how wide the world can be
So I hope you'll come and take a global trip with me
