The Kitchen Stool

When I was just a young school  girl
It seems to me I traveled in somewhat of a whirl

Many times after school, I visited my Gran
I hoped that she had baked and used her old muffin pan

On this stool, while I was seated
A glass of milk and a muffin I would be treated

My Gran and I were such good friends
We would talk and visit until the end

Then home I’d go to do my home work and school projects
And hoped that I remembered what I was taught and did not forget

My time with my Gran was oh so sweet
The cherished memories I shall always keep

The stool has now come into our home at last
As I sit, I continue to think of those wonderful days in the past.
