Poem introduction

This poem is about two old blue Witney blankets which were the blankets on my bed when I was a child, and I didn't see them for decades. I left home, had my life etcetera, then, when I was clearing out my family's house after the deaths of my parents, I found these same two blankets and I took them home, and I now use them again, and they inspired this poem.
