My Grandchildren, 1955

Julie prinks and Jo Jo pranks
Becky says so sweetly "Thanks"
Tony runs and rolls all day
Wally canít be full of play
Blakie plays a lone, wee boy
And does always himself employ.

All are sweet and smart and fine
All kinds of traits they do combine
Little girl or little boy
They ever bring to Gramma joy
Normal youngsters, everyone
Full of life and full of fun.

From babyhood they grow so fast
This year seems it should be last
I fain would keep them as they are
But they are Thine, please take them far
In lifeís long race and when itís oíer
Please, keep with Thee forevermore.
