Beautiful relics dawned the shelf
many as old as the hills
from Granny's little crystal dog
to Grandads tin of pills.
The shine would blind you even at night
great care was taken of the wood
no scratches or blemishes were ever seen
cleaned with love and all that was good.
The pictures lay across the top
in silver plated frames
many dated centuries back
and were shining with the flames.
The Mantelpiece was her pride and joy
a feature that many admired
bits and pieces gathered over the years
and one or two aquired.
The fire grew to life with flames
and so did grandmas treasure
she sat in her wooden rocking chair
and watched her ware with pleasure.
