My favorite Holiday is fast approaching- THANKSGIVING! In honor of this family-gathering Holiday I thought a little family-centered poem would be in order.
A family tradition
Of our own making-
Grandpa’s stories told at each gathering
Tales of misadventure:
Of a child, Marine, father, and grandpa,
Delight and entertain the growing clan.
Grandchildren laugh, Grandma rolls her eyes,
Grandpa leans back,
Left hand tucked under right elbow
At table’s head,
All eyes are on him
As his well-known story begins.
Tales we’ve all heard,
A dozen time or more
Still we request our favorite ones.
Our family gatherings
Wouldn’t be the same
Without Grandpa’s stories told.
