Funny Poems 3 Story Poems 2

Our Granny’s got a Henry –

    Not a Billy or a Jim.

Though Henry likes to move around,

    He cannot run or swim.


He sits quietly in his corner

    With a grin upon his face,

But sometimes Henry’s taken out

     To see another place.


He’s taken on a tour you see,

    Of places in her home,

But Henry’s kept upon his lead

    And cannot freely roam.


His appetite’s enormous.

    He grabbed Granny by the arm,

But as his mouth was rather small,

    She didn’t come to harm.


We laugh and laugh as Henry glides

    Around with little fuss.

He gobbles things from Granny’s floor

    But sometimes turns on us!


                   H E L P !


Now we haven’t got a Henry

    So we always say to Gran:

“Please send our love to Henry.

    Say: ‘We’ll visit when we can’.”

Henry the Supersucker - Heading Children's Funny Poem - Page Heading

My grandson, Daniel, was frightened of the vacuum cleaner when he was very young, and also before he was born, so we were told.  However, when he met our 'Henry' he changed his mind and used to love to pretend that Henry was chasing we grandparents with the intention of capturing us and eating us.  He would laugh and laugh and laugh - - and so would his sister Jessica.   How pleased I was that other children enjoyed this poem so much that they and their teachers decided that it should be published as one of almost 400 poems in 2010.  I hope you like it too.  Josie
