Grandma And I

I had a boo-boo
on my pinky. Grandma kissed
it. All pain went away.

When my mom gave me
time out, my grandma brought
me ice cream. I smiled!

When my grandmother smiles
Parrots talk, honey bees hum
Doves say: we love you.

My grandmother smiles in
The garden. Cherry blossoms
Smile back. Fill her lap.

My grandma so cute
She loves me. I love her. We
Both very happy.

Loved reading through the comments, especially the historical context provided by Terrence George Craddock back in 2010. Why does the Clerk bind a blue bandana round his ears? This one phrase throws me for a loop and alters what, on the surface, seems to be a study in peace.
Oddly eerie that my own morning's peace involves a plate of ham and eggs and dialing up this lovely website where I often find the most pleasant things to read. And after this it appears that today will be most wonderful.
i read and liked PEACE A STUDY...and my favourite line was about 'holiday'....everyday for the CLerk is a holiday....representing peace at work for a holiday.....peace a study...a dream
First time I've ever heard of this poet; first time I've ever read this poem. Fun! Sorta like a pun. I'll read one more, maybe two or three; if I read any more I'm sure I'd shriek.
so if there is no actual Morning Herald, is it a generic ad?
