graced by a girl


sweet little girl in lavender and pink
flashes a smile that charms her grandpa’s heart
petite and quick, she runs if you give chase
she hugs and kisses teddy bear named pooh
then plays toy tractors just like all the boys
her hair is long enough for two pigtails
if she will sit for mom to comb and tie
she pulls out every book from grandma’s shelf
opens each one and turns a page to read
if weather’s warm, let’s go for wagon ride
barn kitten jumps inside to come along
our happy farm girl laughs, waving her hands!
