Clarity,
practiced

back in the day when it was
important virtue
.
Lower your voice, speak
in well modulated tones

Mother said often
.
Do not scream, or yell
use your telephone voice my
Mother would say to me
.
clarity was there
able to understand words
Mother insisted
.
Not lady like, rule
to speak in crude tones or swear
Mother lived her rule
.
Speech clarity was
important, for Mother could
not hear well, this helped
.
Telephone voice brings
clarity, modulated
tones clarity
gift
.
I look back, fifty

five plus years later, smiling:
Mother was correct
.
Peace and quiet help
understanding clarity
Mother knew,  I know .

===================================

The words in bold blue are words, phrases that
are part of my soul now….direct quotes from my
mother.  
  I hear them spoken in my thoughts.
I hear myself SAY them.  My mother insisted
that she be called “Mother”… not “she said,”
or calling Mother “her” even if Mother was sitting
right next to me !
