“Qualities for a Grandma”
By Rachel Heffington
I wrote here some things, quite a lot,
A grandma should be, and what she should not.
She should always be squishy, like bread in a pan,
She should drive an old Buick and never a van.
She should talk about flowers and intr’esting things
And hum when she’s happy `cause grandmas don’t sing.
She should have quite a store of things in a tin
That are good to eat- she’ll have wrinkly skin.
She should have a broad lap that makes a good seat,
And a grandma should never go `round in bare feet!
She should call you an angel and sometimes a dear,
And when you get hurt she’ll always be here.
And when you come vis’ting, she’ll sure be at home,
Because tisn’t often that grandmas should roam!
She’ll make you feel cozy, like toes by a fire,
And her clothes always smell like they’re fresh from the drier,
She should have a soft chin and nice padded knees—
I know this is right for Grandmamma has these!
