Grandma's House - Poem by Patricia Grantham

Grandma lived so close near by just a few steps away
I always went to visit her house each and every day
She opens up the back door and greets me with a smile
Tells me to come right in and talk with her for awhile

A sweet aroma from her kitchen wafted up into the air
Came from her homemade biscuits made with love and care
Child you better hasten now your mother will call you soon
Yes Grandma I'll hurry but I will be right back at noon

Treasured moments that we shared they meant so much to me
Can't wait until tomorrow for her face again I will see
Grandma's house was built with love a special place to be
Still sits there nestled under that enormous old oak tree

    Sweet are those memories of your grandma! The way she greeted you to her sweet home, the warm concern she lavished on you, the delicious goodies she cooked for you and more than everything her genial temper.... all these make her such a beloved....

    What a lovely nostalgic poem... pulled to my fairy days of my childhood, sitting on my grandma's lap and listening fairy tales. Thank you Pat to take me there (Report) Reply
