Grandchildren Feel Sad Because Of Leaving Annville Paradise - Poem by NHIEN NGUYEN MD

This season, our grand children came to visit
Grand mom was busy but she had some days off.
Some days, she helped them to paint or to knit
Some days, she showed them to cut fabrics and to sew
They helped with house chores in cleaning up
To put away clean dishes or to fold dry clean clothes.
For their play, they sprinted themselves on swing sets
Or to mold shapes with many colorful playdoughs.
They rode electric scooter in the house
They played with cats when cats were ready to play.
They spent some time on the internet
They read, they wrote, they sent their e-mails.
They practiced piano to improve their finger touch
When it was not too cold, they played outside.
They made several trips to Hershey Chocolate
To buy gifts or to ride on riding cars.
They stopped at restaurants to eat
They visited Hershey library to borrow books.
Ten days went by very fast
Today is the day they have to return home.
Very reluctantly they carry their bags
They feel sad with tears running down on their cheeks.
Grand mom holds them to give them comfort:
"It's just few months away
You will be back here in Spring time

CHÁU BUỒN KHI PHẢI GĨA TỪ ANNVILLE PARADISE- Poem by NHIEN NGUYEN


Mùa này mấy cháu tới thăm
Bà thì bận việc, nhưng may nghỉ nhà.
Ngày thì tập vẽ, tập đan
Ngày thì cắt vải, đường khâu cho rành.
Khi thì lo giúp dọn nhà
Khi cất bát chén, gấp quần áo khô.
Chơi thì nhún nhảy xích đu
Hay là chơi với playdough nhiều mầu.
Scooter chạy điện trong nhà
Nếu mèo không sợ mèo nằm chờ chơi.
Rồi trên mạng net đôi giờ
Khi đọc, khi viết, gởi lời e-mail.
Dương cầm tập ngón cho đều
Nếu trời bớt lạnh, chạy kêu ngoài trời
Hershey đi mấy lần rồi
Mua qùa kỷ niệm, hay ngồi xe đưa.
Thế rồi lại ghé tiệm ăn
Ghé thăm thư viện, sách mang về nhà.
Qua mau đã hết mười ngày
Hôm nay thì đã tới ngày về quê.
Dùng dằng cháu chẳng muốn về
Cháu buồn cháu khóc, vỗ về bà ôm:
"Chờ nhau chỉ mấy tháng thôi
Mùa xuân sắp tới về chơi ông bà".
