Collecting accumulates information and brings contentment and maybe friendship.

Tell The Story

Who is the collector?
Things saved, treasured and protected,
Collection is organized well,
Each holds its own stories to tell.

Message Included

Many pencils are saved from days before.
Are there any here like any of yours?
The message they provide,
Is found written on their side.

Restored Tractors

The collector's tractors are restored
There is John Deere, a Massey,and a Ford.
Are well polished to shine,
They are all the top of the line.

Remembered Books

The long book shelf is filled
Concealing many great thoughts still,
Choice books they've read.
Remember what they said?

Decorated Cookie-Cans

Picture covered cookie-cans
Ignite a childhood plan.
Decoration above a cabinet shelf
But not for "Help yourself ".

Quilts To Save

Quilt pieces are in a bright stash,
Beautiful colors, none that clash.
Fancy stitches on display
A gift when needed, someday.

Blooming Flowers

There are blossoms along the window sill.
The flowers are blooming still.
Violets of many colors and shades
Lined up there, as on parade.

Information and Fun

Before time is completely gone
Collections should be passed on.
They were fun to build and save.
It was information and appreciation they gave.
