Miss Mace
By Eric Harrison
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary 4-6
Year: 1999 Category: Bell Benton Memorial Poetry Award

When I say you
shriveled, sort of like an
aging, dried raisin,
playing card games in your robe
and fuzzy slippers.
when you made waffles with
lots of syrup on them
and getting a glass of milk
aching, complaining, tired
like a bird that flew a thousand
I saw when you were in the
hospital you were in pain and
worrying that you wouldn?t be
there for me
who used to play cards
and watch Scooby-Doo
through the day even if
you were sick.
You are my grandma.
