GRANDFATHER'S LOVE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: They said he sent his love to me
Last Line: I like his cough-drops twice as much.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Grandparents; Grandmothers; Grandfathers; Great Grandfathers; Great Grandmothers


They said he sent his love to me,
They wouldn't put it in my hand,
And when I asked them where it was
They said I couldn't understand.

I thought they must have hidden it,
I hunted for it all the day,
And when I told them so at night
They smiled and turned their heads away.

They say that love is something kind,
That I can never see or touch.
I wish he'd sent me something else,
I like his cough-drops twice as much.
