Harry's So Worthwhile

by Peter@Poole

The world has changed since Harry came,
Our long awaited great-grandson;
His parents' lives are not the same;
Old patterns had to be undone.

But they've shown love and willingness
To serve the needs of one so young,
And made a home without the stress
That comes to blight the lives of some.

Their baby boy is full of fun
And studies our reactions to
His antics, which, if once begun
will just go on until he's through.

We see him in the photo here
Awaiting feedback from the crowd
Of relatives, who laugh and cheer,
Which makes his parents mighty proud.


Having been charmed by the poems of several grandmothers on this site, I felt encouraged to post one of our first great-grandson, Harry, whom Jinny enjoyed for a while before she was promoted to Glory. I've also embedded an Ivor Novello award winning song about another Harry, sung by one of my favourite singers, Catherine Howe.
