It Doesn’t Hurt to Ask – Poem
My granddaughter was over the house today. She asked me to put a swing set in the yard. I couldn’t believe it! She didn’t ask for a doll or a book, but a swing set! That was too much! She is so cute, but not THAT cute!
It Doesn’t Hurt To Ask
I know a girl she’s only five.
She’s all happy when I arrive.
I love this little granddaughter of mine.
For a swing set she asked today.
Said no, not my yard, go away!
Oh no, I am afraid. Will she start to whine?
Then maybe a pool? She did coo,
At your house I’ve nothing to do.
Only five, yet she can talk such a line!
I baked some cookies, come lets eat!
Hoping to distract. Take a seat.
How to get out of this may take some time.
You have books, dolls, balls and crayons,
Plenty things for you to play on.
She is such a sweetheart, takes it just fine.
Learning early in life I guess
If you ask, if you can impress,
You might get what you want. . . . If not, , , , you tried
