Mom, I cant spell it

Kate Currie

Even when I try!
Really, its too long
Can you spell it again?

Every day, I practice
Dyslexia wont sever the link.
Each time it gets easier
Slowly, I cement the link.
A name that is a the link
Between a grandmother
and granddaughter
that share
a passion
for education,
a love
for music,
an enthusiasm
for hard work.
One is here
and one is passed
But the name connects us
beyond the divide.
