Hi everyone, I wrote this poem when I was 9 years old – it is called “Grandad is”.
I have just found it at the bottom of a pile of papers at home and I thought I would post it on my blog.
The poem is in the style of Valerie Bloom, who has created some children’s poems. I was studying her poems at the time (she wrote a poem called “Pinda cake” specifically.
My Grandad is… (awesome)
de galaxy bar floatin’ in de sky
an’ flufffy kitten
chocolate chunks an’ pneapple cubes
fresh chocolate smell in de mornin’
when me wake
loadin’ up de car
basketful on shopping day
with fresh cheese strings
de pineapples flavouring in de south
sound of de school bell
ring a ding ding
de fireworks in de horizon
underneath de moonlight
an a number one o’ magic
all around me
Grandad my NO: 1 star
