Grandparents Day Poem

A boy writes of his grandma and grandpa. His grandpa, he only knows from his mom's stories, but he sounds like a lot of fun. He has had the honor of knowing grandma, and a sweeter woman you'd never meet.

Grandparents

© Brentney S. Johnson
I didn't know my grandpa,
but I wish I could have though,
'cause from the stories mama has told,
I would have loved him so.
She said he was a big man,
who bounced her on his knee,
he baked her coconut cakes for her birthday,
she even had pictures for me to see.
My granny is very special, too,
'cause when we go to her house,
she finds lots of good things to do,
like making crafts and cookies too!
She takes me and my sister to the park
where we walk the walking trail,
and if it's really hot
she buys us ice cream by the pail!
She likes to take us to the creek,
so we can wade and wet our feet.
I wish you all could know my granny,
'cause she is so very sweet!
