Grandma's Arms

She knitted this as a wedding gift to my parents.

            Hand crafted made stitch by stitch, over fifty years ago.


As a boy it warmed me when sick or cold from winter's play.

            Time passes and a boy I am not.


But this afghan, this work of art still warms me.

            In heart as well as body;


As if Great Grandma opens her arms to me.

            The afghan wrapped all around.


And the chill is gone....
