My grandson just loves to make noise

The louder the better his toys

His batteries I hide

The noise still resides

Turns out that I hid his decoys

Getting it together

Hate bedewed with youth
power to impair ones kin,
grace in growing old
a time to regret, lament...
grandson, reflection of time.

        fingernails cut

     with pocket knife

        dirt too deep

       his thumb

               wooden toy

A Fan Letter

My little grandson Noah,

You're growing up so fast

Seems yesterday you

Were a tiny babe

Time is rushing past.

Now you're almost one year old!

You're such a little man

With brains, looks, personality

And I'm your biggest fan.

A history of mysterys

You sleep with your eyes open

Your memories showing

Your mind is racing

Your imagination roaming

Leave your reality

And you will soon find

That you'll never have answers

Or understand mankind

Short Grandson poem by Elly Wouterse| Details |

Memories and Yuletides

on the little farm 
lots of young rabbits conquered
grandsons' heart and soul

grandpa and grandson
spoiled them up to winter's end
while the years passed by

a cherished flashback
excluding grandson's Yuletides 
when rabbits were gone

Dear Jonas 2K12

Oh! Dear Brother, dear Cousin, dear Father,
Dear Friend, dear Grandson, dear Son, dear Jonas.
When rendered sullen, our strength is one another.
Let the sacred songs be your journey's compass.
For therein the sunshine of many hearts
Shall you bask, thence it love never departs.

Totally shocked when

Eyes viewed the scene

Water still ran clean

Wanted to share joy

Of the fun zoo

With my grandson

And you, grand day

The one who made my mother

The one whos there for me when no one else is

The one who brightens up my day everytime I see him

The one who can put a smile on anyones face

The one that is funny

The one who makes Grandma mad

The one that I love.

Sincerely, Your Grandson. ?

Red-headed, brown sugar drops on nose

Taller, taller, taller he grows

Big brown eyes, braces on teeth

Wax in ears, boots on his feet

(Observing my grandson sitting in the ENT office to be told that he has some 

hearing loss from constant allergy, infections, and middle ear infections.)

Short Grandson poem by Al Parry| Details |


Teenage Girls clad in the latest fashions,
Do it whenever they meet,
Grown men aren't afraid to show some passion,
When their team's comeback is complete,
They can say hello, they can say goodbye,
And anything inbetween,
If you open your arms and crack a smile,
There is nothing that a hug cannot mean.

Short Grandson poem by Barbara Gorelick| Details |

It's All About The Ring Tone

I'm afraid of my cell phone I confess

"Someone" changed the ring tone to cause me stress

While I took a  nap

He switched it to rap

Now when my phone rings I'm really a mess

"Someone" being my grandson Jordan..

 I finally got him to change it

Grandma Rocking

Needed at least one hug today

Validation needed in something you might say

God help my grandson be okay

Reach down and heal his broken spirit if you may

Agony being felt by me

Longing to hold him on my knee

But the time is gone it can no longer be

How can I help him recover to be able to see

Short Grandson poem by Phyllis Babcock| Details |

Welcome Aaron

Just want to shout it from the roof top
The special news that came our way
A new grandson arrived yesterday
His name is Aaron Alexander
Our second grandson has come
And now that today is done
I want to say the heart is glad
Our first son has now become dad.
We are very blessed 
to have this new bundle of joy.

Not to Be Forgotten

(then age four)
trailed behind his
parents as we stood
by our door. At their car,
he turned. . . Something was amiss.
He bounded back, climbed our porch steps
(with my husband's aid), then reaching up
to me, said, "I forgot the hug and kiss!"

My old Gran

When you hit lifes low

in deep confusion

of which it seemed no end,

I recall you thanking God

for ones family also I

your grandson a very good friend.

Whilst your body racked with pain

torment you could not hide

an instance of loving charms,

when from your heart

a welcome sincere

within ever open arms.

Florida Mosquitoes

Florida Mosquitoes 

A boy stayed with his grandma one summer.

Mosquitoes loved him; it was a bummer!

They liked to drink his blood.

It never was a dud.

They lined up to slurp him for dinner.

Co-written by Dane Ann Smith-Johnsen and her 6-year-old grandson who said that the mosquitoes lined up to 

eat him.

Jacob was my second grandson

And has been a Mama's Boy since birth.

Cute expressions and cuddly disposition captures hearts.

Observes everything and starts the brain wheels turning.

When we touch

I feel something happen

When we breathe

All the world is humbled

Stay with me

As my heart surrenders

Comfort me

As I fall apart

When we flee

Darkness brings us release

All you need

You can find it in me

Stay with me

As my heart surrenders

Comfort me

As I fall apart

Written by Janetta's Grandson Mac.

Safe In My Arms

On quiet rivers may you  ride,

Knowing  I'll be there at your side.

Dream your dreams oh so sweet,

For there my love were sure to meet

Wake with smiles for each new day,

Your morning prayers I'll help you say.

Lull-a-bye my little one.

Sleep now, this precious day is done.

For Shae

He has the cutest grin

    That I have ever seen.

And the way his eyes sparkle,

    So lively and so keen.

He has my heart wrapped

    Around his little finger and

He knows he has me easily

    In the palm of his hand.

I fell hard and I fell fast

    For this handsome one.

This charmers only six years old

    And he is my grandson.

Short Grandson poem by James Foulk| Details |

Quiet Little Child

Quiet Little child, so at peace

you are as you sleep on,

such dreams you must

be having.

Watching you lying

there without a care

in the world.

Waiting until you

awake, so I can

see your beautiful smile

that you always give to me

and to tell you how much

I love you.

For my grandson Brandon

 What a blessing a new baby boy
 May he bring you lots of love and joy
 May he be blessed by the Father above
 A small bundle of pure heavenly love
 A grandparents smile of delight
 As your eyes focus on this sight
 We wish you  both a lifetime of joy
 On this your first new grandson--a boy.

Congratulations to Peter and Sharon on their first grandchild.

<center>You are the newest thread
in the tapestry of my life -
once neatly-patterned, 
but now criss-crossed 
and sig-zagged
with the vibrant strands
of your sister.

You, too, will be interwoven
into the fabric of my life
and be interlaced through
its brightness and hues
and be intricately entwined
and securely knotted
with one golden thread -

Boil On__Uh Tailbone

My grandson who lives with me

Has a boil on his __Uh tailbone

He is in terrible pain because

He is all alone ...can't sit at 

The computer or sit to talk 

On the phone..can't go anywhere

For he would have to lie down

In the back seat in the car

He's moaning and groaning

And ill as a trapped cat

But don't call or come over

For he wants to suffer alone

Everybody likes me.

Nobody hates me.

Because I share my worms 

Yummy, yummy gummy worms

Sour and sweet yummy worms

Sitting in my kitchen, sharing worms!


Yummy, yummy gummy worms!

When I jump into your shoes,

And see what you see,

You feel warm inside,

And I see you kissing me,

When I jump into your shoes,

And feel what you feel,

Your hurting inside,

And I see you can't finish your meal,

When I jump into your shoes baby,

I see what you see,

Now something feels cold inside,

And I no longer see me.

Gamble it away, it's okay...( by mac my grandson and kimmy holmes son)

Just call me Mr. Ruffle,

Because I'm stacking my chips,

One more roll of the dice,

One more lick of your lips,

Just call me Mr. Lucky,

Because I'm supposedly clever,

One more flip of that card,

One more pull of that lever,

Just call me Mr. Broke,

Because I took that last chance,

One more failed attempt,

One more empty pocketed pants.

This poem

This poem could have healed,

Could have done anything,

If it had been revealed,

This poem is lost,

Between two pages of an unknown book,

Maybe indefinetly tossed,

This poem is constricted, binded by society,

Yet freely sways like the tree it once was,

And its open minded artist bursting with variety,

This poem is me.

By Janetta's Grandson Mac

Short Grandson poem by ilene bauer| Details |

Down the Road

You won't remember that you slept

All curled up on my chest;

Or how you smiled on seeing me,

Which made me feel the best.

The hours that I held you,

Fed you, burped you, changed your clothes

Will surely be forgotten

As they should be, I suppose.

Your babyhood will disappear

Before I've had my fill

And you'll remember none of it

But my sweet boy, I will.

Short Grandson poem by Tshifhiwa Given Mukwevho| Details |

I stand puzzled

Jail was the land of my sojourn
for a decade

Now out of it all
building my life anew
I meet you dear woman, woman of the green breeze

Your mom is so illogical, thoughtless and heartless.

She pours a bucketful of human excrement
on my face, and expects to hold
the child of my blood in her arms
calling him her grandson 

I am left grappling
with tremors of prejudice. 

Short Grandson poem by Phyllis Babcock| Details |

A Perfect Bundle of Joy

A new little bundle of joy

A brand new grandson ,the cutest boy

We are as proud as proud can be

It's our first grandchild you see

Rylan, Micheal, Kilo is his name

Our house will not be the same

Smiles, laughter and the joy

When we first saw our little boy.

Sharing the news , giving you the scoop

To all my friends here on the soup.

Windows Frozen

Windows Frozen

By Elton Camp

It was a cold, blustery winter day

Granny texted her grandson to say

Windows frozen, wont open.

You can help, I was hopin.

Pour warm water I recommend.

Your problem, that should end.

Granny did just as he had said

Then her next text to him read:

Do you think I should pour more?

The computers worse than before.

Hunter was my first grandson

Undeniably he stole my heart the day he was born.

Notices needs and cheerfully helps his younger brother and others.

Terrific at the many things that he does... everyday!

Energetically, enthusiastically expresses love and entertains.

Really enjoys the outdoors and learning.

My shirt is splotched with spit-up,

Though my shoulder sports a burper.

My clothes are like a kingdom

And my grandson's the usurper.

He drinks his bottle, gives a burp

And then, without a doubt,

A quarter of what just went in

Comes, like a fountain, out.

I really do not mind, but learned

My lesson, truth be told - 

When I'm with Henry, what I wear

Is faded, frayed or old!

Short Grandson poem by Brian Strand| Details |


Ruth,a lovely lady of Moab,

Nearly always picked up the tab;

Gav her mother-in-law a helping hand,

Emigrating back to her distant homeland;

Naomi quickly returned the compliment,

Matchmaking bing her special bent;

The romance of Boaz and Ruth,

Crossing wealth & caste,showed such love can last;

As grandson Jesse put forth his root,

From which sprang forth the eternal Truth.

Short Grandson poem by Phyllis Babcock| Details |


Today you have turned five 
Made our hearts come alive

It does not seem that long ago
 time moves fast and not so slow

You captured our hearts with your smile
Those little feet run mile after mile

The excitement that you show
 how your little face is all aglow

It lifts our hearts and makes us smile
Our little boy has turned five for a while.


for our grandson Rylan on this 5th birthday
