Letters to the Editor from the Spring 2017 Issue

A reader shares a poetic tribute about his grandma's apron.

Tribute to Grandmother and Her Apron

I loved the article “Mom’s Apron” in the Spring 2016 issue of Capper’s Farmer. Since you asked for stories about aprons, I thought I’d share a poem I wrote in 2009 about my grandmother’s apron – observations as to what it meant to me as a young boy when up on the Gaspй Coast of Quebec, Canada.

I’m an American citizen, and we use the old homestead, which is 150 years old, as a summer home. I bought your magazine in Florida, where we spend most of our days as retirees. I then sent the magazine to my son and his fianceй, who live in Maine and love country living.

I hope you enjoy it.

Grandma’s Magical Love Apron

I had a dear grandmother who loved me very much.
She lived in a home in Canada that boasted an old farm hutch.
When school was out in summer we boarded a steam train
and made our way up north, through the muskeg and the rain.
