My Granddad - Heading .jpg


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.

*  Knobbly - having lumps which give a misshapen appearance.

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
