Grandpa and Me


I’m beginning to look
Like my grandpa looked
When I thought he looked
Very old

I’m beginning to think
Like my grandpa thought
When his thinking, I thought
Was quite droll

I’m beginning to see
As my grandpa saw
What he saw through his
Aging eyes

I’m beginning to know
What my grandpa knew
All those things that made
Grandpa so wise

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
