To read my previous poems that she has published, just go to the search box on the left side of the web page where it reads “search for poems,” enter Mazie, and then click the

Again thanks to Ms. Ferrer, and thanks to all of you who read and express appreciation for my work.
Another congratulations for you, Randy. Hope all’s well with you two. 🙂
Went there and read the poem, but I can’t leave a comment and I don’t need another account anywhere so I’ll say here that I loved this poem. You hit the generational differences just right as well as the memories and the love.
Mazel tov, Randele!
You put me in mind of my dad who taught me the fine art of blowing the paper wrapping off the straw. One time I shot one directly into this mouth as he was opening it to bite into a hamburger. In true Bob Wisoff fashion, he removed the paper from his mouth, crumpled it and dropped it into my pop. 😀
Love the poem. Such fun. I’ll bet you are the world’s best grandpa.
