To Great Grandparents


The eyes don’t have the depth of color
But twinkle just as nice.

The ears don’t hear the quieter sounds
But listen for them twice.

The legs don’t move as fast as once
But make a comfy lap.

The arms don’t hold the weight they did
But hug you while you nap.

The lips don’t always speak as quick
But hum a happy song.

The heart doesn’t seem to beat as loud
But loves you just as strong.


*I know some of these should have 'ly' at the end, but I don't care...poetic license, doncha no.

  1. This is so beautiful, Donna! And the pics are wonderful. I'm sending your link to my Mom. She will love it too. :)

  2. I love it, and suspect the great grandparents will too. My grandchildren sadly have none, sad to me. I spent time in my grade school days with a dear great grandmother, special times. Love the 'twinkle just as nice'. And-thanks for the Red Mill recommendation; we'll try it. I know we seem to connect in several ways, but hot cereal!
