Magdalena conferred dignity on us

Lena and Jacob @ their 50th Wedding Anniversary Lena and Jacob @ their 50th Wedding Anniversary

Grandma sewed 44 sets of PJ’s each Christmas,
Baked crullers, sauerbraten,
Sat enthroned in hassock-ed chairs,
Reigning o’er progeny’s den.

Baked crullers, sauerbraten,
Offered quarters for allowance,
Cooking lessons, Ed Sullivan’s TV dance.

Sat enthroned in hassock-ed chairs
Upholstered comfort, doilied arms,
Sweet kitchen smells, soft balms.

Reigning o’er progeny’s den:
Nodding, dignity conferred
On all her brood, her herd.

    What a wonderful tribute to your grandmother. Modeling her for your grandchildren closes the circle.
