“My Mama moved among the days” by Lucille Clifton

My Mama moved among the days

 

My Mama moved among the days

like a dreamwalker in a field;

seemed like what she touched was hers

seemed like what touched her couldn’t hold,

she got us almost through the high grass

then seemed like she turned around and ran

right back in

right back on in
