It Doesn’t Hurt to Ask – Poem

03/25/2012 at 12:35 PM 1 comment

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
