My Paintings

Apple Pie And Grammy


It was a cold wet and very dreary mid October day,
Noticing my granddaughters mood was kinda gray.
Many thoughts, ideas went rushing through my mind,                                            Surely there must be something useful that I can find.

There it was on my dining room table in a ceramic bowl,
Two kinds of green apples a bit ripened but not too old.
Quickly itemizing in my head all the ingredients I'll need,                                         I realized that I had them all and surely would succeed.

At first my granddaughter did not seem very excited,
So I threw some flour at her and she became delighted.
Next was to see who could cut the longest unbroke peel,
Her eyes lit up and a big smile, how good it made me feel.

The following fall I bought McIntosh and Golden Delicious,
A gift for my granddaughter that was totally nutritious.                                          I am eager to explain my heartfelt desire and ambition,
How wonderful it will be to make this our October tradition.

So my dear granddaughter I will not deny,
You will forever be the apple of my eye.

    1. Good day, thank you, my granddaughter is a grown woman now with two daughters of her own. I was thinking about her recently remembering those days and thought it would be nice to write this poem and send it to her.​

      1. And I assume a good story? You and I seem to like a lot of same things, perhaps because of how and when we were raised. I love your “The Chocolate Baker” blog and following.

      2. Thank you again Eugenia, it is not the best of times for her right now so I wrote and sent the poem to her. Things happen and life goes on and hopefully we all grow up someday. Best regards 🙂
