My House The Picture Gallery

Pictures, pictures everywhere,
on my dresser, in my chair,
hanging on my wall with care,
in my pantry -- even there!

Every space that I can fill --
they're sitting on my windowsill!
Some of Mary, some of Bill,
some of Kate and little Phil.

Smiles of mischief, smiles of glee,
bringing joy and love to me.
Perfect pictures do I see,
depictions of true artistry.

Grandkids mean much more than gold;
you treasure them when you are old.
