Grandma Reads To Caitlyn

By John I. Blair

Leaning forward in her chair,
Grandma reads to Caitlyn:
“Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.”

Half-turned, intent
On page and phrase,
Softly she smiles, she glows,
Looking younger than 65.

Heeding what Grandma says,
Caitlyn, tiny princess
Crowned with dark brown hair,
Stares hard at every word.

Already Caitlyn knows
Grandma loves her,
Nor has she any need
To ponder what that means.
