Poems for my Grandparents

By Melanie Markham

My Nanny and Grandad are really great,

When I’m on holidays I can stay up late.

My Grandad is gone 69,

he watches TV, a lot of the time.

He backs horses nearly every day,

Nanny Likes to bake,

She bakes lots of tasty cakes.

Every day she goes for a walk,

to get the paper and have a talk.

I love my Nanny and Grandad.


My Granny

My Granny is really great,

She’s like a best mate,

I could talk to her all day,

She is always very kind,

And I love her very much.


Grandad in Heaven

My Grandad used to

cycle to the well everyday

To get some Holy Water.

He went to mass every day

He sat beside the window on the stairs side

and left his hat on the window.

I still love my Grandad very much.
