Grandmother’s China

Standard

Blue and white
Hairline cracks
A reminder of a simpler time

Plates, cups and saucers
Three tier cake stand
Sugar tongs

On a dresser of highly polished oak
Strong
For something so fragile

Don’t touch
It’ll break
To be looked at

Never to be used again
Just look at it
You can see the dust thicken

Over the blue and white
