Ode to a Typewriter

Smith Corona, Father’s boon companion
when he, with GI Bill, was college bound.
Lent to daughter, helping her to fashion
stories, poems, essays—a proving ground
of steel and ink for writerly pursuits.
A steadfast ally as she sought her voice,
first in struggle, then accomplishment.
Today, this sweet reminder of my roots,
sits near at hand. I see it and rejoice
for Dad, who was for me so provident.
