17. Happy Birthday Grandpa

I tried to rhyme a word with seventy
And I ended up with my poetry entry
So this is for you
For your heart that stayed true
For the honesty of the man
I always knew

Fought in the war, forever knowing the score
Worked for the railways
Told me tales of those strange days
Sat on my bed or sat on your lap
I couldn’t watch as the stroke; your strength it did sap
But I saw you re-find your ways

And now on your special day.
I stand with you at your favorite bar
With your stories of people from afar
I listen like I did when I was nine
For when they made granddads
I’m glad they made you mine

Happy Birthday

– Alexander Hall

All the experience
You have gained until now
Gives me the shivers
Making me go wow
The vast amount of knowledge
That you have got
Makes me feel proud
I respect you a lot
To have you in my life
I am very lucky
I congratulate you
For turning seventy
Happy 70th birthday

19. Grampa the Ultimate Hockey Fan

Grampa turned 70 May 28
His is full of pride watching his grandson skate
Hockey’s his thing; he shares his wisdom
His grandson got a goal and shared the vision
Grampa said, buddy do it for me;
Get me a goal or a hat trick; that’s three
His grandson complied and shot the puck free
He got grampa his goals and waved his stick for victory
After the game, grampa is so proud
Thanked his grandson for working hard and snagging some net
His grandson smiled and high fived grampa so loud
He said, grampa you have more fun to come yet!

Between us, there is
A big age gap
When I was small
I used to sit in your lap
Although we are
Many generations apart
We have been friends
From the very start
As you become
A septuagenarian today
I love you, grandpa
Is all that I want to say
Happy 70th birthday

Funny Poems About Turning 70

Bring some laughter to the party with these funny 70th birthday poems that talk about the 70-year-old youngster.

21. I am the Birthday Boy

Three score and ten lit candles – what a blaze
Until asthmatic puffs can quench their fire –
Have scorched the icing, though the cake wins praise,
So, everybody, grab a plate and try her.
And thus, dear friends, I start my eighth decade,
Still dentally unchallenged, still alert,
Though, hobbling down some endless esplanade,
Both knees feel twinges, and my pride is hurt
That in the twilight years post-LXX
A walking stick assists my feeble tread;
And as for congress with the fairer sex…
Sleep is my only purpose when in bed.
“Septuagenarian”: now there’s a word
Whose linkage to oneself is best deferred.

– Marvin Rabinovitch

22. Happy Birthday

Your diet will now become
Totally sugar-free
You will be told to
Live less strenuously
Your energy levels
Will now take a beating
You will be instructed
To limit your drinking
All these limitations
Mark the start of your old age
Congratulations for turning
In your life, a new page
Happy 70th birthday

23. Me And 70

The cake is ready
The candle is set
And me and the candle
Are starting to sweat

The guests are coming.
I’ve put my teeth in
Now, where did I put
That 4th glass of Gin

50 was hard
60 the worst
Now 70 is here
And it’s not worth a curse

There goes the doorbell.
They’re finally here
I just can’t wait
The songs, merriment, and cheer

I rush down the stairs.
At the pace of a snail
I find the Gin glass
Should have used the rail

I’m falling now
I glide through the air
Will I see 71
Not sure-epic fail

The doctors are nice.
They say don’t worry.
But all of the faces.
They’re getting so blurry..

It’s not the best birthday.
That I’ve ever had
But at least I’m not 80
And for that I am glad

My son hands me cake.
They all sing to me
Me and 70
Incomplete harmony…

– Rody Patrick White

24. 70th Birthday

Today is your 70th birthday, don’t pull your hair,
Look in the mirror; nature was fair,
Not a day over twenty,
I’m kidding; you’re plenty.

Don’t mean to burst your bubble,
But stop asking for trouble,
You know what I mean,
When you drink that caffeine.

What should I bring?
Just give me a ring.
Elephant or clown?
I knew you would frown.

Happy Birthday!

25. Antique

You are antique,
We need to tweak,
Start with physique,
Let’s make you a geek,
Or just join a clique,
And become sleek,
What do you seek?
A birthday creek,
With sublime mystique,
Surely unique,
I shouldn’t speak,
Quite often critique,
Courageous or meek,
Today is your peak,
Enjoy your week,
And stick out your cheek.

Have a great 70th.
Happy Birthday
