Remember the Anonymous Poet:

I miss my mother’s Sunday fried chicken.
I miss pinto beans cooked on a wood burning stove.
I miss bottles of milk with cream on the top.
I miss the taste of butter freshly churned.
I miss my grandma’s homemade biscuits.
I miss apple butter cooked in a copper kettle.
I miss shucking corn to feed the chickens.
I miss cornbread made with cracklins.
I miss penny candy from the old country store.
I miss picking blackberries from the vine.
I miss my mother’s fried apple pies.
I miss the little girl I used to be.
