A Matter of Choice

She had mastered
Many of the
Good old ways . . .

The churning of butter
The making of soap
Storytelling and nickel bargaining
Some fiddling and pickling
Candlemaking and quilting
Front porch rocking and crocheting
Preserving and canning.

And of course
She came to know
A laying on of hands
Amazing grace
And broom jumping.

All but the last
Saved her.
