A younger John-

I had a Mother once, though of her voice I am not aware

I recall the sincerity of her eyes and the way she pinned her hair

I think she had a crimson dress but of the material I am not sure

For too many years have passed now-she is a memory, nothing more

 

I used to have a Father and his name was Matthew McGrath

He was an Irish man and must have practiced a craft

Mr Hopps said he was a drunkard, but that I cannot recall

Sometimes I often wonder if he knew my parents at all.
