Don't Eat The Olianders
Pretty poison in the yard. Butterflies
Abound - Horseflies fly into pool. Bees
Buzz! Algae, fish, lady bugs, yard tools.
Grandma's house is pretty. Houdini The
Turtle escapes to visit. Next door, new
Neighbor - Max! Runs with Arthur - Chow!
Eddie and Max run for a ball, Mom throws.
Catching night fireflies, letting them go.
Sparklers burn bright. Yearning to learn,
What a wonderful childhood. Theirs, mine.
Black widow spiders at pond's edge, fish
Larger each year. Beautiful webs hang by
Dream catcher - Chimes! Tree grows over
Waterfall. Wildflowers in the rock path.
Cactus. Desert beauty blooms. Algae blooms.
Mesquite overhangs driveway - Sharp, Ouch!
Rock bench for writing and reading, taking
In all of God's wonders. Blue skies, Sun
Warms my face as I wish a wish, bidding a
Neighbor hello, goodbye, or Good Luck!
Moved on to Grandma's house by the little
Church. I walked to hear music and words
To live by. Tyler had a coke and asked me
Why my treadmill was dusty. Pictures adorn
Walls and furniture. Books adorn shelves.
With antiques, dolls, bears, knickknacks,
Snacks, candles, flowers. Red juice for
Mykayla, milk for Matthew. Bar B Que adults
Enjoy our getting together to bless meals.
Christmas exchanges, warm fire, pretty tree
And decor, Wyland's piano. Halloween
Pumpkin carving, costumes and candy!
Thanksgiving we held hands and gave thanks
For an excellent meal and good health all.
Beautiful hutch full of mementos, pictures
Adorn buffet. Casey's on the computer and
Tyler wants another blanket. I'm another
Grandma Smith and I couldn't ask for more.
