New poem for Nan's 90th

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 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 !


  1. What a sweet poem to your Nan! Happy Birthday to her! (and watch out Hallmark)

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog and glad you like the poem :)
