Who’s that coming through the old apple trees,

With her new red shoes and socks to her knees?

Quick, shut the cat away.

He makes her uneasy.

Offer her Cheerios or a stick of cheese.

Says dad, that cereal is sweet.

It’s only a treat at grandma’s house.


She builds toilets out of bristle blocks

for the dolls who live in the ding dong house.

We make cards together with hearts and dots.

Bath bubble hills and lilac clouds

Sing a song of soapy suds

Brush her hair, undo the knots.

Story time now at grandma’s house.
