Golden Granny

Mother of Mother
You are my Grand Mother
Root of the family tree

You are a Matriarch
Qualities in profusion
Like you I always want to be

My Granny with white hair
With glasses and no teeth
Birth to 9 children makes you venerable
You are the Elizabeth Queen.

And now you are gone, everything is wrong
The food does not taste good
As those elixirs have never been cooked

No one even knows how to comb; I still have a tangled hair
Resurrect my Granny as I still have to grow
I have to learn many more things from you

Don't leave me in despair
From my Golden Granny
I always need that extra care.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
