MY POEMS
 

Boston to Skegness Seabank

Marathon

 

Our poor feet

 

The day started oh so bright,

We all lined up, what a glorious sight,

As the air horn blew the race began,

From Boston we left along the Haven Bank.

 

The sun shone high,

As we fell into our stride,

At first it was easy,

Although a little breezy.

 

Checkpoints came and checkpoints went,

Hob Hole, Freiston, Leverton and then,

The half way point at Wrangle Bend.

 

Our legs began to feel some cramp,

As the sky turned increasingly damp,

We walked and thought with little talk,

Friskney, Wainfleet our poor feet.

 

Gibraltor came with so much rain,

Seacroft Square we were almost there,

The final mile brought a smile,

What a view as the Clocktower loomed,

Just in time we crossed the finish line.

Poetic People

 

Poetic words from poetic people,

Witty lines,

Rhyming rhymes,

Poetic lines,

All come from poetic minds.

 

Witty lines or funny lines,

There wrote for laughs, often about gaffs!!

Created for laughter with light hearted banter,

Full of fun with many a pun,

Thatís how there done.

 

Poetic words from poetic people,

Witty lines,

Rhyming rhymes,

Poetic lines,

All come from poetic minds.

 

Certain rhymes at different times,

Strike a chime,

None no better than a nursery rhyme,

Once remembered never forgot,

Wrote for tots, much loved by lots.

 

Poetic words from poetic people,

Witty lines,

Rhyming rhymes,

Poetic lines,

All come from poetic minds.

 

Poetic lines are not always rhyming lines,

Intellectual lines or story telling lines,

Sometimes there silly, full of willy nilly,

Often they donít rhyme,

But never mind nor do mine!!

 

Poetic words from poetic people,

Witty lines,

Rhyming rhymes,

Poetic lines,

All come from poetic minds.

PRIVATE PARTS

 

 

Private parts,

On every body,

Are there to make,

Your life more jolly!!!

Snipe Dales

 

As the sun arose,

Majestically into the sky,

Mist like a crystal cliff,

Suddenly vanished from about us.

 

Trees began to appear,

Like guardian angels by our sides.

 

Green scenic surroundings,

Hung like velvet tapestries,

Adorning palace walls.

 

Streams and ponds glistened,

As if diamonds in some wealthy dynasty.

 

Birds began singing joyfully,

As if they were the choir,

On a royal occasion.

 

Animals scurried energetically around,

Just like the crowd,

Not wishing to miss out!!!

 

Our day at Snipe Dales,

What can I Say,

But wow!!!!!!!!!

Diana

 

 

Doing for others so devotingly,

In life your charm did radiate,

And your presence illuminate,

Never ending love you did spill,

And share with all at your will.

Memories are sound

 

Pleasure and love aplenty,

Abound from his songs,

Uneventful they are not,

Listful some maybe!!!

 

Mildly it started,

cavern it grew,

Conquering these isles,

And finally the world,

Remembering those times,

The memories are sound!

Never to be repeated,

Except next time around,

Yesterday tomorrow no more sorrow.

My darling dear

 

The love inside,

Lets me know,

How I miss,

My darling dear.

 

Days are long,

Nights much longer,

Loneliness I feel,

Is mighty real.

 

Oh my dear,

My darling dear,

How Iíve missed,

Your presence here!!!

The Fun of tomorrow

 

 

 

 

 

As I glare through my window,

The world appears so hard to follow,

Iím longing for an end to this sorrow,

I sometimes wish I could catch an Apollo,

But I fear Iíll remain in my hollow,

Searching for the fun of tomorrow!!!!

THE WORLD AT WAR

 

 

The world at war,

Was full of goor,

The fighting raged.

 

Armies were engaged,

As if they were caged,

With no thought of escape.

 

Death was all around,

So many perished,

Life was to be cherished.

 

No thought of surrender,

Just be a defender,

Until the tide turns.

 

The offensive will start,

Enemies uíll dart, fall apart,

The final shots will depart.

 

Then flags will fly high,

As parties deafen the night sky,

The world at war,

Will be no more!!!
