Grandpa and I

A child’s imagination and whimsy

Photo from Lightfield

Up with a squeak, back with a squork,
Grandpa pushes and how I laugh!
Can I fly to the sky and ride a stork?
Can I jump across the neighbor’s path?

Big girl that I am, I’ve learned to take turns.
Grandpa, grandpa, get on the swing!
I’ll give you a push. With no concerns
Grandpa smiles, content as a king.

His princess granddaughter shows her love
For the swing and her grandpa with a little shove.
