Palimpsest by Mervyn Eustace Morris

Grandma, much younger
than her age-paper,
is giggling on the floor
with baby Jon
as with his daddy
forty years ago. ‘Age
is just a number,’
as the slogan says.

Grandpa seeming buried in a book,
gives thanks for her
endearing gift
and mumbles Larkin,
‘What will survive of us is love.’
