I’m excited! My grandpa is coming to visit me today.
I love when he comes, we always travel and play.
Papa-G listens to me, and he follows my lead,
I tell him the things that I like or I need.
First, I think we’ll go to the park.
There’s one on 33rd Street, between Diamond and York.
Will we walk today? Or should I ride my bike?
We can catch the bus, to save us the hike.
Look, Papa-G! Do you see what I see?
I spotted something shiny beneath my blue seat.
May I get it? Oh, wow! A coin, just for me.
I can add it to my collection of quarters and pennies.
At the park, I choose the swing or the slide,
If I hear Papa-G count to ten, I run and I hide.
He looks, then he finds me, crouched under the stairs,
Papa-G lifts me way up and swings me in the air.
After that, we go back to our row-home to find…
Aha! My toy car I left behind.
It’s just where I placed it, under the chair
I was in such a rush, I forgot it right there.
Oops! Have to hurry, Saturday has almost gone by.
Be ready when Momma comes, and please do not cry.
I finish my picture… 1, 2, 3…
Look Papa-G! It’s you and me!
“Where are we?” you ask. You don’t guess or make believe,
You give me choices, and you follow my lead.
