Grandma's English Cushion...

Pattern will be out soon...

 

Grandma’s English

 

My grandma’s English

a royalist so sweet,

with embroidered hankies

and pinnies pressed neat.

 

Doilies on the dresser

scent of talc and rose,

Freshly starched linen

memories that let you doze.

 

A cottage with thatching

with lavender in rows,

little grey cobbles

knee deep in snow.

 

Strolling hand in hand

pebbles by the sea,

It’s turning quite chilly

it must be time for tea.

 

Comfort by the hearth

wool close at hand,

An hourglass has no time

without any sand.

 

My homeland is distant

a land and sea away,

Now filled with grandma’s love

all I want to do is stay.
