Granma and Granpa's Favorite Poems

Mal Ki 

– Our Grandfather


As I walk life’s trails 

imperiled by the raging

wind and rain, 

grant, O Great Spirit,

that I may, yet, always 

walk like a man.

Nellie Collins 

– Our Grandmother


May there always be work

for your hands to do. 

May your purse always hold

A coin or two.

May the sun always shine

on your window pane. 

May a rainbow be certain

to follow each rain. 

May the hand of a friend always be near you.
