Poem About my granddaughter

Kindergarten Basketball

There once was a girl who could run.

At basket ball, running, has fun.

Score, she has not yet.

Ball can’t reach the net.

Hands held high, defense plied, we won!

.                                    – June Nash

I felt compelled to write a quasi limerick about my granddaughter.  She is learning to play basketball.  I went to her game a few days ago.

Poem about my grandson

Crawling Baby

There once was a boy on blue carpet

Crawling, not toddling, not ready yet

Constantly he’ll talk

But still does not walk.

Catching him at this pace, is no sweat.

.                                    – June Nash

 

Another quasi Limerick.  This time my grandson is my inspiration.

The Park – A kid’s point of view

This poem was inspired by my granddaughter.  She loves playing in the park.

The Park – A kid’s point of view

 –

To the park I want


To go this fine day

I must ask my aunt

To take me to play.

 –

We’ll walk to the park,

Kick sticks as we go.

With chalk I will mark

An X and an O

 –

Sliding down the slide,

Swinging on the swing,

Playing seek and hide,

Will do EVERYTHING!

My aunty said yes!

So glad she agrees.

Now I need to dress

In my dungarees.

It Doesn’t Hurt to Ask – Poem

My granddaughter was over the house today.  She asked me to put a swing set in the yard.  I couldn’t believe it!  She didn’t ask for a doll or a book, but a swing set!  That was too much!  She is so cute, but not THAT cute!

It Doesn’t Hurt To Ask

 –

I know a girl she’s only five.

She’s all happy when I arrive.

I love this little granddaughter of mine.

 –

For a swing set she asked today.

Said no, not my yard, go away!

Oh no, I am afraid.  Will she start to whine?

 –

Then maybe a pool? She did coo,

At your house I’ve nothing to do.

Only five, yet she can talk such a line!

 –

I baked some cookies, come lets eat!

Hoping to distract.  Take a seat.

How to get out of this may take some time.

 –

You have books, dolls, balls and crayons,

Plenty things for you to play on.

She is such a sweetheart, takes it just fine.

 –

Learning early in life I guess

If you ask, if you can impress,

You might get what you want. . . . If not, , , , you tried
