Poems My Grandmother Taught Me


Just why do I love you?
Dear one, if I could
Tell you in words
I certainly would!

But can you explain
Just how the snow
Warms sleeping gardens?
And do you know

How the evergreens,
All winter through,
Stay beautiful?
And from where does the hue

Of the rainbow come?
Oh, tell me, Dear One,
Why does the sunflower
Turn to the sun?

How can a baby,
Too wee for choice,
Always tell
His mother’s voice?

Just why do I love you?
I really can’t say.
You can’t explain love,
It just happens that way!
