to lift, to hold





to lift, to hold
or to carry;

practical, plain or painfully ornate;

looped. hooked
or apostrophe shaped;

to move along or to tarry there
for so long;

wood, leather
or hand carved ivory
made at another time, altogether gone.

held fast
and steady

or shoulder slung
ever so gently--
strapped and hung.

maybe a single one--
preferably many more
when heavy or oblong.

padded or bare boned;
mahogany framed,
cedar lined;

inlaid,
otherwise pine--
planked simply instead.
