Grandfather, Grandfather - Poem by George Barker (George Barker)

Make This Poetry Your Favorite

Grandfather, Grandfather, what do pandas say? Grandfather, Grandfather, as among the rocks they roll and rather sadly play a game that seems to do with dreams of places far away. Grandfather, Grandfather, what do pandas say? Grand-daughter, Grand-daughter, when the pandas play rather sadly in the rocks this is what they say to one another as they seem to remember in a dream those places far away: 'Let us tell no one the word that we say softly to one another as we roll and play. For if they ever heard it, the tall two-legged Understanders who always want to know what pandas like us love to say, yes, if they ever heard it they would take it away.' George Barker
