    Walking with Grandpa I like to walk with Grandpa, his steps are short like mine. He doesn’t say “Now hurry up,” he always takes his time. I like to walk with Grandpa, his eyes see things like mine do, wee pebbles bright, a funny cloud, hidden drops of dew, most people have to hurry, they do not stop and see-I’m glad that God made Grandpa, unrushed and young like me.
