Gary Stock, a father of two sons and six grandkids, who gained inspiration from his grandchildren, has completed his new book “Tales from a Grandpa”: a gripping and potent compilation of fifteen short tales written in verse.

“Two sisters were out playin’ // When comes an idea. // A whisper came in the ear of Sam. // ‘Let’s ask Mom,’ said Thea. // They ran into the house // Where Mom was doin’ dishes. // Quickly, they went up to her // To ask about their wishes. // ‘Can we stay at Grandma’s? // Can we spend the night? // It would be so perfect, // Such a wonderful delight.’ // ‘Think we should ask Grandma?’ // She looked at angel faces.

‘Grandma might have plans, // She might be going places.’ // ‘We could make a call // And see if she is free. // Maybe she’d be happy // ’Bout stayin’ with Sam and me.’ // Mom dialed the number // Then Thea took the phone, // Thinkin’ just how to ask // If Grandma would be home.”
