Visiting Grandma

Supper was over.
Grandma bent over her quilt frame
under the lamp.
The radio rattled on.

Grandpa sat in his big chair
eyes closed
big man bone tired after a long day
in his woods and his saw mill.

I, big girl of seven,
sat on Grandpa’s lap
combing his long gray beard,
gently divided it in two
braided each side
tied on a pink ribbon
from Grandma’s work basket.

The radio rattled on.
Grandma chuckled.
Grandpa smiled
eyes closed.
