Sweet Sixteen Grandmother

old photo

grainy old photo

My dear grandmother had a sweet little wish,

To be immortalised as a sixteen year old miss,

All she had,

was a grainy old photo,

that she wanted enlarged,

and framed, pronto!!

The photo developer gave up and said,

the photo’s too old and shaky, I dread,

it won’t come out good, sorry I can’t help,

What could we do, we came back instead,ammfinal

I wasn’t convinced though,

that nothing could be done,

there had to be something,

to cheer up my gran,

So I stared at the photo long and hard,

while an idea struck,

with the click of a finger!

I sat down to work,

as soon as I could,

When it was done, I couldn’t help,

but give it admiring looks,

I’m not a great artist,

I have to admit,

but I gave it my best,

for my granny at least!

Sketched the photo as big as I could,

her reaction was worth it,

If I may include!

The best compliment came from grandfather himself,

who couldn’t stop gushing,

at his wife’s portrait,

I’m happy with my work,

that much I know,

well, what do you think,

may I ask so?
