Grandma’s Legacy of Love
[Dedication Poem written for my dear grandmother; Irma Christina (Snyder) Meyer]

The davenport rocks
The needles keep the beat
To the hums of pure contentment

It is the place of solitude
A place of peace
Found in the beat of life

A smile looks up from her work
From the colors woven tight
Like the warm embraces from her heart

Warmness is found all around
Steam from the brewed coffee
Sweet aromas within the oven

Offered from an expression of tenderness
Genuine gifts of love amidst
All respond to her entwined love

It is her delight to be gracious
An innocence of kind favor
A cherished devotion to all

Her legacy reveals purity
And remains a preserved treasure
To all who have encountered her heart.
