My Nickel

Grandma said, girly,

Hold your nickel ,

and I did.

Grandma say, spin baby ,let me see you spin.

I’d go spinning on my toes and she’d say my, my, how you’ve grown.

I’d show all my teeth and she’d say baby-girl hold your nickel between your knees

Remember your space is holy that nickel between your knees
