    Ruskin Bond, in this poem, tells us how his grandmother had a passion for climbing trees from a very young age and how she could climb trees till the age of sixty-two! The only problem was that Bond’s family was scared that one day, she would fall. Once when everyone except Grandma was out of town, the old lady climbs a tree but is unable to come down. After being ‘rescued’ as Bond puts it, the doctor advises her to rest. However, Grandma is not able to live without a tree, so she tells Bond’s father to build a treehouse.

This poem shows the unconditional love Bond has towards his family. It shows his ability to enjoy unusual events and actions.
