At the beginning of 2016, I got talking to two grandparents, of a preschool child
She's a cheeky we lass, comes from being self-confidence!
They told of their grand child, was reading her granny's books!
Ignoring, her granny's, instructsans, not to! I did say she were proper cheeky!
Well, I felt, the little girl, should be encouraged to read!
So I on getting back to house put copies of books by Terry Pratchett, who wrote for those who read! Into my book carrying bag, so next time, we met, gave Terry's books to give to her!

Yesterday, I saw, the little girl, with her granny and grandad, in town
Their little grandaughter, and is she grand! On seeing me, came up, smiling
'' I LOVE TERRY PRATTCHET!'', ''He gives me dreams, when I go to bed!''
I have MORE, STP, books to give her! You see, she reads! Terry Prattchet would approve!

Terry Prattchet is a great choice to read for any young woman.
Making the young brave is our most important task. Good one.

I love that line, "He gives me dreams when I go to bed!" Any writer who can do that is truly accomplished!

Thank you for a wonderful poem.
