Connections: July 17

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAToday is Grandma O’Hern Day

the date she was born and died.

She always had rice in her salt shaker

and a tin with buttons inside.

She said she was no gardener

and maybe that was true

but she always grew moss roses

and now I always do too.

Her house was our Saturday treat

my brother and I would play

with brown sugar sandwiches to eat

and I miss her to this day.

Catherine Nowak O’Hern

July 17, 1888 — July 17, 1978
