I remember the special sound
of multiple old clocks
loudly ticking away
at grandpa’s house

I do have a watch
that makes a nice ticking sound
I keep it in a wooden box
tucked away in a drawer

it’s there with several other watches
and some rings and things
but I can’t hear them ticking
or anything

    It occurs to me that my kids would be shocked to know that many clocks used to chime on the hour. 🙂
