I have a little grandma, she used to be a witch.
She’d fly high on her broomstick and make it roll and pitch,
And turn bad people into frogs and take away their gold.
She says she doesn’t fly no more…..
I think its ‘cause she’s old!

She’s a lovely little granny and she likes it when we stay,
She gives us sweets and tasty things and plays with us all day.
But sometimes she is very stern, when we’re not being good.
I don’t think that she’d use a spell……
Although I know she could!

She says that she has give it up, she ain’t a witch no more,
But looking at the sky last night, well now I’m not too sure.
For flying high above my house and lit up by the moon,
I sure it was my grandma……
With her poodle on her broom!

The moment created this second, is a moment that's going to last.
It lives the full spectrum of time, the future, the present and past.

black poodle

Thanks for the welcome comment. Yes. it is our black poodle Lucky. He was the subject of the poem I posted called 'Our Little Dog', and it's a wonder he can still stay on the broomstick! I think he's been taking lessons from Harry Potter.

Thanks again Its nice to now someone enjoyed it,

Let's hear it for Grandma
Hi Ivor...good for granny...glad to see she's still "flyin high!" Surprised she's still using the ole broomstick tho, I turned mine in for a motorcycle...I can climb higher and faster. I'll give her a wave next time I run into her! Thanks for the giggle!

Your grannie sounds like fun!
I'll bet she filled your heads with all kinds of mysteries when you were kids!

When my (4) granddaughters come each summer (2 @ a time is all I can take), they all want me to read from my autobiography because most of it is silly. I think being a grandma is the best thing that can ever happen to a woman (besides her husband of course!) I hope they remember me with the kind of joy that you remember her.

We're the Oldies!
Thank you for your comments, the poem was in fact written by me about Joan, my wife, for our two grandchildren!

What's the title and pen name of your autobiography I'd like to read it, sounds like fun.(

I agree entirely with you and these little 'true' stories we have always told our children, and grandchildren, keep the immagination laughing....both ours and theirs.

Thank you once again,

RE: My autobio
So far, it's about 200 chapters and still under construction. I've posted some of it here under titles like the "yellow paint saga" and the "cheap green slacks" short stories. Stuff like that: some better than others. It's been quite a ride! Next, I hope to post the "Bear Coat Tale." They love that one, but my husband keeps telling them it's a "fairy tale."

Thanks for the comment, did your class get to hear it? If you tell me where you teach I'll see if I can get Joan to fly over to sign autographs!

Thanks again,
