She used a soft white cotton cloth, laced with tiny blues, placed it in the book of love created for her infant Jude.
While he ran and played with friends, she kept her book on knees care bent, marked her place with a little spare sock whenever he had needs.
It seems her bookmark had variety depending on her task, a leaf when walking in the autumn, a violet which he presented at her ask.
When he grew up and left her home, to college he would go, she gave him a leather bookmark for love and luck, to keep his place.
Jude came home for winter break and lounged on the settee, when called for dinner he grabbed a pen and bookmarked at his place.
He learned just like his mom to use what was handy to keep his place, the leather bookmark gathered dust, it was not of his breeding.
