“If you build it they will come”
says a movie quote that’s wise
but for my new home
not a Field of Dreams did I devise
but a space for grandchildren
someday, to play and read.
Built before the first was born
white shelves with books old and new
tubs for toys, a rocking horse
a rack with dress-up clothes, too
while visions of happy children
danced through Grandma’s head.
