Thank you for our special time
We hope you like our little rhyme
With grateful thanks one Happy Grannie:

Heaven is a comfy bed,
With pure white linen to rest our head,
To sleep so well and wake like new,
We've enjoyed Devon's treasures under skys of blue,
We've loved your house and enjoyed the grounds,
and seen the wildlife all around.
We'll remember the owls and house martins too,
As they love Woodhouse as much as we do.
So now it's time to load the car
to journey home it seems so far.
We hope the coins dropped down wishing wells
Will bring us all some lucky spells,
to bring us back another day
with one more grandchild to laugh and play.

- 28 Jul 12
