A Poem for Tuesday

This poem is for my Grandma Malmberg, the little girl in the picture above.  She is no longer with me on earth, but she is always in my heart.

Valentine for Granny
Solveig Paulson Russell

Dear Granny, here’s a valentine;
I made it just for you;
This rosebud and this paper lace
Are fastened tight with glue.

This little heart I painted red,
These flowers I made blue,
And Granny, look, here are the words,
“Dear Granny, I love you.”

* Gigi, in case you have been wondering, would hit me hard if I called her Granny.  She has taken her 88-year-old self and her new Kindle Fire and hopped on a bus for Mexico.  I am not even kidding.
