Promoting Communication

To her grandchildren, she sent riddles, the best she could find,
in hopes to this humorous pursuit they inclined.
Though nonsensical, to promote responses designed,
will they, or will they not, apply their mind?

For anticipated responses, she'll eagerly wait,
thinking it only delay if answers are late;
a nudge on the phone may speed up the date
In any case the purpose, was communicate.

One mother, bless her heart, peeked at the clues;
the children, who knows if they added their views.
She waited for answers, her mood rosy hues.
If I were you, I'd reply, wouldn't yous?
