Theme: ‘Your Memories’

Memories by Georgia Green

None of my Nanas and Pops are alive anymore
But I remember them

Seeing my Nan at her house
My Nan played bowls
My Pop used to have Weet Bix
My Pop played golf
He went for Sydney

My Dad’s Mum used to make YoYo’s
Really tasty and crunchy

My pop, he went into hospital
My Nana’s plaque is in the hospital

And I remember too
Going to Melbourne to stay at my sisters
Seeing Muriel’s Wedding and Shrek
And sitting in the second row from the front
Catching up with my cousins in Adelaide
Dressed up as Where’s Wally at her birthday
