Ivy’s Shelf

As her life was how she kept it.
As she liked it so she left it.
A labyrinth of nicky nacks
a hoard of unboxed bric-a-brac
untold low cost collectables
in brimming bright receptacles
gorgeous gift shop ditherings
things to fill and filling things
trifling trinkets bits and tat
and stuff to stare and wonder at
ornamental incidentals
adornments kitsch and sentimentals
treasured presents and particles
of interesting articles
tinkered tampered touched and fiddled
souvenirs curios higgledy piggled
art bought abroad and much admired
paraphernalia acquired
memories from bygone days
precious keeps and here to stays.
As her life was how she kept it.
As she liked it so she left it.
