When I was a wee one
I always wanted to visit Nana
and bring her flowers.
Seemed to me she never got any.
As I saw things,
she was always alone, too.
I picked beautiful dandylions for her
and she put them in a water glass on her dining table!
I didn’t know it was a water glass
nor did I know the “flowers” were just weeds.
Nana must not have known what they were either
because she kissed me
and said they were beautiful
just like ME!
