Made Nan a lovely card for her 90th birthday next weekend using the new ‘teabagging’ technique I’d learned, but I always like to insert an appropriate poem or verse inside. I did a bit of searching for something suitable but upon typing the words ‘poem Gran’ into Google most of my results were poems for funerals……how very cheery! Due to this I decided to have a go at writing one myself and this is what I came up with (the reference to moving house is due to her having moved many, many times!). It’s not quite Shakespeare I know, but it will suit my Gran :)Well, Gran it’s your birthday So an ideal time to say Just how much you mean to us In every single way
You love to chat and tell us things About your life so far You make us laugh with things you say But that’s just who you are
Now that you are 90 You really must slow down No more moving house again To another tempting town!
You really are so special And though you don’t like fuss Enjoy you’re 90th birthday With love from all of us !
