The Old Chestnut Tree

The Old Chestnut Tree Under the spreading chestnut tree I pondered for a while And touch the trunk in wonderment of its roots within the soil For to bear a weight such as this the grip is deep below And the water that it feeds on that makes it thrive and grow And in its foliage small birds nest when... 

An Artists Gift

An Artists Gift In nature’s way of creating art At dawn it makes an early start It merges dark clouds with the bright And streaks the sky with pinks and white And in the meadows a softened mist Leaves dew drops on the plants it kissed And when the sun it starts to show It’s like an orb with its...

Fantasia 4th October 2012

Fantasia 4th October 2012 One night by the light of the moon The clothesline came alive The shirt caused the blouse to swoon When asked up to dance for a jive The socks and the nylons they danced Their footwork mesmerised all the rest In excitement a bra hit the ground But there wasn’t a sign of a...

The Atlantic

The Atlantic She is fierce, powerful, a magnitude of emotion crashing ferociously against the hardened rocks. She glistens in the sunlight and for a moment, is serene.

The Joy of Fishing

  The Joy of Fishing  A sport of sport’s in the morning sun Out at a lake reflecting all The colour of the sky above And listening to a skylark call The robin with his begging ways The fishermen that know him well The distant sound that’s in the air Of the ringing of an old church bell The...
