Poetry Teatime: Four generations
My 89-year-old grandmother traveled from Minnesota to Washington to stay with my parents for the last month. Today she and my mom came over to teach Claire (6), Colin (4), and me how to make her famous caramel rolls. Four generations came together to teach/learn how to make these beauties. When we pulled them fresh from the oven, we brewed a pot of tea and shared them over poetry.
Great-grandma didn’t want to read any poetry, but she got a kick when one of the kids chose one she knew and she giggled at the silly poems my daughter read beautifully.
The kids loved hearing their grandparents read some of their favorites too. Pops read “High Flight” and “The Owl and the Pussycat,” among others.
We love our poetry tea times, but this one was extra special! Thank you for the inspiration!
