This post is a memorial tribute to my grandmother, Ethel May Selka.  I’ve written a number of posts with poetry and song that she has inspired or that makes me think of her. This post collects all those things.

When I sing the song Edelweiss, I often think how my grandmother was a lot like that flower.  Today, I wrote a little poem about it:

144.
I love to sing Edelweiss 
And play my guitar
I think of my Gram
So like that white flower

A little bit stern
Not very frilly
Snowy, straight forward
So very pretty
