             GRANDPA'S KNEE
There's no place I would rather be
than sittin right here on Grandpa's knee.
He wiggles and jiggles and tickles me,
and tells me great stories of strange
lands across the sea.
No, there's no other place I would rather be
than sittin right here on Grandpa's knee.
Sometimes when I'm sitting here,
and it's very later at night,
he tells me scary stories that are
really quite a fright
But I know I am safe as I can be
cause I'm right here on Grandpa's knee

  Nona, this is very touching and so sweet.  You should give this to your Grandpa right away as a gift, I am sure that he will be honoured.  This reminds me of when I sat upon my Grandma's kneee.  Thanks for sharing this piece.

Take care,
Melissa Honeybee

I am so glad that I was able to convey the wonderful feeling I had for someone else to know too. Makes it even greater to me to share it.My Granpa's been dead many many years, at least his body is gone, but as you can see he is still very real to me

Anyone who has ever sat on Grandpa's knee knows the feeling of this poem.
Nice work!
