How I remember it

The three of us girls have to sit side by side

because mom and dad want to go for a ride.

We know all the roads, we remember the way

we take the same path as we did yesterday.

The sights and the sounds and even the smell

we're going to Grandma's, it's easy to tell.

Beside Grandma's house there's an old wooden shed

and two full trees with cherries bright red.

In her front yard there's an old crooked tree

that serves as a horse for us girls; all three.

We're greeted by Grandma at her front door

Grandpa is sleeping, we know by his snore.

Mom and Dad want to visit and we want to play

so we're off to the woods for adventure today.

Just down from the house is an old maple tree

in the middle of the road where a tree shouldn't be

threr are leaves to collect and flowers to find

I want to have only one of each kind.

Huckleberries, June plums and salmon berries too

we all get some:  there's quite a few.

We hear someone calling, they're yelling our name.

We follow the trail back the way that we came.

It's time to go home so we call it a day

We just can't wait to come back and play.
