Greatness Through Generations

On a stool she sat at
Great Grandfather's feet,
He, feeding her ice cream as
a birthday treat.

Two years old siting up straight
to catch each yummy spoonful ,
mouths open both of them,
as the ice cream goes in.

Sun shinning brightly in the
bay window ,leaving both in a
cool-shaded silhouette.

A random picture taken, turns
a sweet gesture into a loving
memory for the two of them.

Immortalise now forever in time,
in a large frame ,on a table
beside the big green rocking
chair , only he sits in.
