For Kathie

To My Granddaughter

By Ernestine Cobern Beyer

Kathie's eyes are bright, alive,
Her manner, blithely charming,
And though her years are only five,
Her wisdom is disarming.

When she, at times, invades my room,
I leave this peaceful place;
Astride Imagination's broom,
I soar with her in space.

Within my own she lays her hand,
And with a compass true,
She guides me to that happy land
Which long ago I knew.

Contemporaries, she and I!
For though my hair is white,
When Kathie blithely passes by,
She leaves me young and bright!

*Gotta windshield?

Ok, I'll 'fess up-

Geez, you're tough!

Well, I used to read quite

Now it's kind of a different
story- mostly due to the
fact that reading puts me
to sleep- no matter how
fascinating the subject-
which never used to hap-
pen at all- I used to read
well into the night.

Also, lousy vision is a factor
