Gramma's Chair (an Easter Poem)

Life goes 'round in circles
And mine has traveled far
I can’t find my way back
For my home is in the stars
How long could love ever last
As long as my heart’s known
How I miss you sitting there
In an ol' parlor rocking chair
Next to the stone fire place
With your knitting basket
Stuffed with steins of yarn
That familair old stained
Yellowed mitten pattern….
To make green dragon mittens
With the red mouths inside
And ohhh those shiny golden eyes
How much you loved them too
Making them smile at me
A little puppet to cheer me up
How much you made me laugh
How much I miss your soft voice
Singing all those fairy tales
And funny nursery rhymes
About spiders and beanstalks
Giants and princesses
Even a woman who kisses cows
Always a happy ending
Many years have gone by
But how you are never forgotten
Nor your gentle love ever loss
Now it is I, Grams, who sits
In your old parlor chair
Smiling at your memory

About this poem:
A little nostalgia in memory and and respect of my long departed Grandmother who taught me many things at a very early age about life. Happy Easter Gram !!! I sure do wish I could find somebody like you again to make me smile. You were the kindest and greatest woman I've ever known.

Happygolucky... Thanks for commenting. Similar to you, I spend all my summers of my youth at my grandparents cottage on the shore of our Lake Champlain. My cousins, and brothers...somehow sleeping wherever we could throw a cushion and blanket on the floor or couch. It was such a magical moment in life to all sit around together and hear my grandfather tell some of his pretty long tales....and watch Grandma smile and occasional blush and shake her head always knitting away. They were my whole world!!!daisy daisy daisy daisy daisy daisy daisy daisy daisy daisy
