Granddad's Loft

My granddad's loft is full of stuff
not getting used and caked in fluff:
a leaky pair of wellingtons
two ancient, plastic skellingtons,
garden tools with last years mud,
old tins of gunk or is it blood,
electric tools and pots of glue,
a stuffed meerkat, a broken cue,
boxes packed with this and that,
an ornamental Cheshire cat
and best of all the rocking chair
where me and Granddad natter there.

  1. love that verb ‘natter’: it’s such a warm, companionable word, a bit like yr grandpa; love too that musty Aladdin cave of granddad’s things 🙂
