One Day In Spring

One Day In Spring

Flowers falling to the ground from trees of Green all in a row
Smiling faces, happy sounds, School is over for another day
Where am I? You might hasten to say, under the shade of a tree in full flower
The first of November is here again and so is the Sun without the rain
The School bell tolls the end of day, students rushing by and still I wait
But not for long she comes to me, "Hi Grandad, where's mum today? "She asked
As I gently hugged her and kissed her head
"She's busy and working hard today but never mind
I'm here to take you home, so, here's the keys. Let's go."
I parked the car where I usually do and my grand-daughter
Who had not long turned eleven years of age had found it
And had started the engine and wound down the windows
I was surprised of course but she said, "Mum let's me do the same in our car"
"I'll have to teach you how to drive then" I said and meant it too
She nodded her head in agreement and gave out a loud "Yesssss"
"Let's get you home then," and off we went
The usual chatting took place between a grandad and grand-daughter
Finally we reached her house and with a smile I kissed her head
And waved good-bye
The flowers are still falling here
Now it's Spring in this land we call Australia
