Bertha Butcher's Coat
Bertha Butcher's Coat by Mary Lucille DeBerry
Bertha Butcher's Coat, stray buttons, an elegant pen, scraps of red fabric: all might be found in an attic. Add an ancestral farm, a big city and a small town where a child associated as much with grown-ups as with other children. These grown-ups recounted family stories, made quilts, grew gardens, farmed, quarried stone, drilled oil wells. The poet observed and remembers.
Mary Lucille DeBerry is a native of West Virginia and long-time resident of Morgantown.
