Man with Grandsons


By Josie Whitehead

My Granddad

My Granddad is an awful tease.
He rubs cream on his knobbly knees;
     Says ice cream’s good for double chins
     And chips do wonders for your grin.

He buys us chocolates, pushes swings;
Kicks the football; sometimes sings.
    He makes rude faces – noises too
    And tells us stories that aren’t true.

He mends things when they're broken . . . and,
I think that you will understand,
    To me he is my light and joy –
     A best friend to this little boy.

Copyright on all my poems

Children and teachers enjoyed this poem enough for it to be published in my book: JOSIE'S POEMS 'Celebrations' in 2010.  I hope you like it also.  

Granddad and Grandad:  This can be spelled with either one or two d's.  It is more often spelled with one d in the UK and two dd's in America, but both spellings are correct.  You choose.  Josie
