My Grandma Louise (Acrostic)

by Maple Tree   Oct 25, 2016

Many blessings she has granted over the
Years, this woman is my true light.

Graciously comforting me as a child
Rich in love and culture
Artistically talented
Nature sings her name as
Daffodils wave in her
Motherly presence
And I am overjoyed.

Lovely woman, eyes of blue
One flower in this
Unique bouquet of life,
I love her
So very much, for all of

    Honestly, as I read this I completely forgot that it was an acrostic, it did not feel forced or awkward at all. The capitalizations did not feel like they were out of place and the stanza breaks actually only enhanced the meaning of each one. This was absolutely lovely. There's so much love, gratitude, and kindness oozing from every word of this - and it is both inspiring and captivating. I really had to scrutinize this to find anything negative, and I still don't have anything - so that is amazing. And it is a very clear representation of both the author and the generosity of the world. Really, in it's own way, this piece gave me hope

    Andrea, what a beautiful birthday present.
    Many happy returns to
    Your wonderful Grandma

    Got to say this is a
    Really beautiful dedication
    And I hope you showed it to her.
    Never have I read anything so sincere.
    Do you think you could be any sweeter?
    My thoughts are still with you
    And I was so elated when you said she had come home.

    Lovly is missing
    One letter, the E (lovely)
    Understandably you love her and
    I would love her too.
    Sincerely I am
    Ecstatic she is home.

    Happy birthday Louise and well done Andrea.
