Back today, Yay....!
(about Vinhie and Miffy)

Good morning to all poets-friends in Poem Hunter
two full weeks I have missed you, terribly missed
I'm back again
with a big sigh
with the Boeing777-300ER
what does time fly,
especially if you have been with your first grandchild
It's always feast, lots of feasts

We have read, sung and danced
each one gets the chance
to feel at home
even though you are the youngest host
since your grandmother is visiting
that's a great honour for you

Then there is always something not 100%
but the books of Bruna about Miffy are well-known
and world famous
which Bolcom could not sent in time

so Grandma instantly went to the bookshop, selected the books your Daddy asked
and bought them all
shopping is not perfect yet,
all books are paid,
but they are incomplete
Grandma must wait and wait
to take these books with her

it was too late,
since Grandma will be leaving
in the morning
and the books will be coming
in the early evening


The books your daddy wants to have for you, dear Vinh
and the books grandma bought, she has found all complete
for you Miffy books most series
has Grandma found for you
despite the books ordered did not arrive in time
Grandma honoured your Dad sublime
with the Miffy books he chose....

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
THIS IS NOT A TRANSLATION from the Dutch poem, but the subject is about the same things.

Vinh's Dad asked me to bring all the series about Miffy, in Dutch it is Nijntje. Since he himself had the complete series when he had the same age as Vinh, so he wished the same complete Miffy series.

O-line shopping in the Netherlands is not perfect yet. Oftentimes the ordered things have been paid, but they remain incomplete.
This is not to be repeated for the next time, especially when one is going to abroad and must have the ordered things in time.

Thailand have these Miffy books too, but not in Dutch.
"Schade", the Germans would say.

Thank you for reading and commenting,

Going to a bookshop and selecting books for son and daughter-in-law is a fortune. A mother's grace and affection we notice in this poem with greatness of her excellence. She is very much affectionate towards her first grandchild and penned a lovely motivational poem. With the Miffy books, son is honored by own mother. We hope all are happy there by God's grace. You have arrived safely by his grace.

2) Spending time with the first grandchild is very emotional and affectionate experience of life for a grandmother and this memory is precious. Poem written in Suvarnabhumi International Airport is splendid. Going to a bookshop and selecting books for son and daughter-in-law is a fortune. A mother's grace and affection we notice in this poem with greatness of her excellence. (see 3)
