Grandparents. Many, many years ago when grannies were little girls. They had very long hair with polka-dot ribbons entwined around their curls. And granddads played with catapults and different wooden toys. They were full of mischief and curious little boys. They learn to climb the tallest trees and tease the little girls. And pull their polka-dot ribbons out and mess up all their curls. Then they grew up and fell in-love that's when their lives began to change. They'd act daft with lovey stuff which some girls found very strange. Lives tapestry exchanges their struggles to survive. The best memories are those of my grandparents and the changes in their lives.

It is wonderful to have fond memories of our Grandparents, I was fortunate to have two loving grannies and one surrogate grand father. Nice poem Patricia

They are very special people though, full of lives experiences. Hey guess I know cause I'm one of them now. I have 8 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Where do the years go. I often wonder how I got to this point in my life. So glad you like my poem thank you.
