We had the good fortune on the program to have the regular contributions of the award-winning poet, Lola Haskins, who wrote frequently and powerfully about her own childhood, and the experiences of her young grandchildren. Our programs also touch on such “classic” poets as Edward Lear and Ogden Nash, Mother Goose and Carl Sandburg.


In our continuing series of new poems by Lola Haskins about her grandchildren, her children, parenting, and grandparenting, we have these reflections during these times of presents on what one mother hopes to leave to her children – her gift to them.
