My legacy -
What will it be?
Flowers in spring,
The cuckoo in summer,
And the crimson maples
Of autumn ...

My grandmother left words of comfort and wisdom, joyful song, the cheer of a yellow canary, red cups of Naked Ladies blooming in spring, and heavy heads of yucca in late summer. She left graciousness, a respected name, and happy memories. And always, a helping hand to all who came to her. Is that not a legacy, too?
