Grampa's House

I love to go to Grampa's house.
He lives far, far away.
It's hard to sit still in the car
and it takes us two whole days.

My Grampa's fun is different.
He doesn't run and play.
But grampa's fun is special fun
and I love him best that way.

My Grampa tells me stories
when I sit on his knee
about the games and things he did
when he was small like me.

Sometimes he takes me fishin'
in a boat out on the lake.
We sing songs and then I giggle
at the bird sounds Grampa makes.

My grampa knows the names of things
like trees and plants and such.
He shares the stuff he knows with me
and I love him, oh so much.

I wish he lived next door to me.
He lives so far away ...
but I love to go to Grampa's house
though it takes us two whole days.

This is so sweet, CJ. My grandparents died way before my dad had any children; and I never new my grandparents of mom's side. The died befoe I was born. I do know grandpas can be funny. I've met a few in my time.

God Bless
Love, Lena

It didn't take us two days to visit Grampa, just about an hour away, but how I loved going to his house...I sometimes smell this certain smell that reminds me Well done, CJ, thanks for the memories. :)

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I just love reading material like this that puts grandpas (and dads) in a positive light. I have just about finished a university degree in social science. The material has been badly infested with a particular strand of misandrist feminism that paints a totally negative picture of fathers and grandparents (especially of the nuclear family variety). More the loss to these bitter course writers.
My favourite relative was Uncle Ernie, and reading this delightful and breezy poem triggered thoughts of him and his loveably peculiar ways. You will forgive me for taking inspiration from your poem to do one in honour of him in due course.

Don't have too many memories of my grandpas but it sure is fun being one. This poem reminds of the times with Mo and points out the great times to come. She still likes your poems best, even better than Shel(what's his name). The thing now is for Mo and me to color in her coloring book, tear them out and then make up a story.
Grandpa Hugs to you

I think Grandparents are amazing...both of my Grandpas were sick from the time I was born until they passed away but they both adored me, and the times we did have are so incredibly special to my heart. This is such a lovely little poem...Michelle

This is so precious CJ! My children only have to drive 30 minutes in the car and still it seems forever to get there! Grampa's are so needed now more than ever! Stories of long ago, from the face a child knows!
Love and Peace

This brought back fond memories of my own beloved Grampa
Technically brilliant and rich in sentiment..
Your fluid poetry is effortless and harmonic, CJ..
