A Poem for our Christmas Gift, my granddaughter, Holly Noel


She’s Grandma’s little darling

And cute as she can be

A very special little girl

On that we all agree


Perhaps I’m somewhat prejudice

Cause that’s how Grandmas are

I think she’s sweet and wonderful

And our family’s latest star


There’s a simple explanation

And a nice revealing key . . .

She’s everything the books say

A little girl should be


She loves to look feminine

In ribbons, lace, and bows

She’s a real little lady

From her head to her toes


She’s coy and she’s impish

Yet, that dear angelic face

Is a clue to her sweetness

And to her charm and grace


She’s giggles and good humor

She’s all hugs and kisses

She’s bouncy blond pony-tail

With charm that never misses


She’s a precious little sweetheart

And I can promise this!

She’s blessed us with her presence

Like Heaven’s sweetest kiss

Grandma’s Gift

I have received requests to post family poetry.  Holly’s request came in first so this is the poem I wrote for my Christmas grandchild.






Grandma got a special gift

On Christmas Eve this year

And that is how it came to be

That Holly Noel is here


A precious little someone

(And beautiful, too)

With hair like strands of spun gold

And eyes of Heaven’s blue


Delicate little nose and ears

(Right where they should be)

A hint of a dimple in her chin

(A gift from Grandpa V)


Her tiny pink cherub mouth

Is mighty, mighty sweet

And a marvel of perfection

Are her wee hands and feet


There is no baby cuter

Nor will there ever be

She’s a Blue Ribbon Winner

As everyone can see


Because she’s nearly perfect

Someday it will be known

That she’s just a little Angel

With wings not yet grown


If I’d have ordered ahead of time

I’d have cast a magic spell

And ask for a Granddaughter  like

My precious Holly Noel
