Robertatalloni means creativity. Whether in writing or in more typical art forms artistry (and a bit of fun) must be part of the work.

Grandmama Loves You Dearly, EM,


Busy questions

springing out so cleverly,

Sweet chatty words,

bloom-sugared giggles,

Your bubbly ideas

chase pink wiggles!

Precious Girl Growing Up!

Musical smiles,

eyes dancing blueberries,

Happy fingers

working to make pies,

Tip-toes stretching,

reaching for the skies.


Smart feet bouncing

to take a romping journey,

Red hair trailing,

trying to keep up.

"Wait just a bit!"

"Careful when you jump!"


Tired babe fades

in swirls of luminosity,

Proud Grandmama

cuddling spent girl

Yawning sleepily,

in my lap curled.


As I softly sing love’s song of prayer.

Grandmama Profoundly Loves You


Dearest EM in all the World,

Since first writing your poem I've watched you grow into a little girl who is everything and more than I knew you would be! Your delightful ways and eagerness to learn, your brilliant creativity and willingness to think analytically, all point to an amazing future with much potential in life.

As you learn and grow I continue to pray for you, asking God to grant you a heart filled with deep understanding of what He has revealed to mankind about Himself so that your precious feet go safely in the way of His Word. May all that you think and do be pleasing to Him, that by keeping His Word you will have His promised great reward through His Son, Jesus the Christ.

As the chapters of the book of your life are written I pray that you will become so engaged with your Creator and God that your life of grace will be able to grace all you meet with His glory. May your days honor Him, that all His good words may be fulfilled to you as your path grows ever brighter. May your life be a praise to His goodness and mercy, and may His grace be the health and beauty of your life.


OXOXO

      Sweet poem to your granddaughter, I hope you have wonderful times with her. My mom has one 15 year old GD and loves her so much, she is her cuppycake no matter how old she gets.

      How lovely - and the moments just speed past the older we get, don't they? How unfair is that? It's important to seize them though and hold them as precious jewels - which you obviously are doing!! Beautiful! Rated beautiful and voted up.

      This is very beautiful. I have 9 grandchildren. I remember only a few years ago, my husband (Grandpa Scott)swinging our little Ella on our porch swing. She promptly fell asleep in his arms. Precious memories!

      What a lovely thought. Imagine your granddaughter having a look at this one day when she is older. A very wonderful idea.

      Thank you kindly for saying that you got it. :) I find that it's still a work in progress and have changed it since you posted.

      I have two more granddaughters to love (at present) and write about, and have already posted a love note to my grandson.

      So appreciate that you came by and shared your input!
