Grandsons


Grandsons. Yes, I'll hug you.
Hug you and hug you and hug you
until you say 'Grandpa let go! '
But I won't, not ever.
Never, never, never.
I watch you boys sleep.
I watch you boys play.
I watch you fight and cry and
yell and scream. Laugh and giggle
and run like the demons of hell
are chasing you.
But even if they are, they'll
never catch you. Grandpa won't let them.

I listen to your chatter and reply in kind.
Hear your tales of invention flood
from your little minds.
Stories and adventures. Little boys world.
Grandsons, dear Grandsons, you do
fill up the hours of the day.
Grandsons. Yes, I'll hug you.
Hug you and hug you and hug you
until you say 'Grandpa let go! '
But I won't, not ever.
Never, never, never.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
