poem response 1

Taking Down the Laundry

In my view this poem is about a mother who is looking back to when her children were young. She is reflecting on their growth and coming to terms with how they have gone on to live their own lives. She realizes that they no longer need her to wash their playclothes, but wants to keep memories of their childhood close. She can't believe how fast they grew up.

It has been hard for my parents seeing me grow up. I showed them this poem and they were very sad and completley agreed with the poem
