The poem explores Bailey’s relationship with her mother and the re-collecting of stories that shape the past. Bailey opens the work with images of mornings as a young girl on the piano bench sitting beside her mother, Nancy Marguerite Perrin Bailey, who often played the Chopin Preludes. Nancy Bailey was the librarian and journalism teacher at The Altamont School from 1970 – 1992, and fed poetry and literature to her daughter as well as to many former Altamont students during her career.
