My Granddaughter

I stroked her hair as she closed her eyes
Then put her big story book away
How easy to love my granddaughter
When with fairy tales or dolls I play

I feast my eyes on her as she sleeps 
Then return to daughters dining room
More juice? Son in law now says to me
Waving bottle in hand; I say nay

She's little now but the day will come
When no doubt more wrinkled I shall be
When with luck she'll want to play with us 
Plates cleared for games like Cheat or Rummy

  2. Oh, how delightful. You had me entering right into this tender scene with you.

  3. This is a bit of serendipity - we both posted pieces that speak to how easy it is to love our little grandchildren.

    A lovely family sketch - tenderly penned, Robin.
