Grandchild

You came to me on an August morn,
As small as a thought, and as new as time,
And before long you crawled, then you stood and walked,
And into my lap you daily climb

Like Spanish moss on an aging tree,
With each breeze you drift and meander:
As the tree stands still with its roots in the ground,
Now gifted with something like grandeur
