Dear little house that has been home
Good Friday 2012
Oh donkeys with ears like furry Easter Lilies,
Now I try to
Write a poem
But I find it
When I find the
prompt is music
If it wasn’t
For the challenge
I woud sit here
But I am too
Even if I’m
One more stanza
Lest they think
I haven’t tried
This silly poem
Nearly made me
Lose my mind.
Marriage is a foreign place
Alone I walk the paths I take
No hand to hold, no vow to make
No orange blossom, tulle or lace.
Though Wedlock is a holy land
My pilgrim soul will find its home,
In the summertime when the weather's high,
you can stretch right up and touch the sky,
when the weather's fine,
you got exams, you got exams on your mind.
Have a think, and revise,
Make notes and have keypoints underlined.
We're the girly swots, we're not dirty, we're not mean.
We love books and we don’t do anything.
When the weather's fine
We get sunburn and stay in the library.
We're always nerdy,
Life's for reading about, that's our philosophy.
Sing along with us, dee-dee-dee-dee-dee.
Da-da-da-da-da...Yeah, we're really geeky,
When the winter's here, then it's reading time.
Bring your study notes and a highlighter pen.
It'll soon be summertime, and examinations again,
We'll go revising or maybe we’ll write an essay.
If we work, and practise,
Study really hard and we'll all get a grade A
Just discovered this and thought it would be a good discipline. A new day a new verse form. Never even heard of a triolet before. Suppose that is bad for a Literature graduate.
So this was inspired by a face book picture.
To Mary's cat.

A whole two inches. It was great to see kids and dogs playing on the cliffs and making snowmen. Took me back the decades to when I was very young and we used to vet this every year...
Tuesday night I crawled back from Lymmers inthe sleet to beat the work traffic and did a shop at Tesco to make sure we didn't have to go out having called my blind neighbour to see if she needed anything, then went home, located shovel and broom from garage and put in porch and waited. Next morning just a sprinkle of snow... was wondering what the fuss had been about (though I had to clear huge lumps of ice from my wheel arches) and the snow arrived. Visted neighbour walked to post offince catching snowflakes on my tongue and feeling my shoe size not my age! Later went up and took pictures on the cliffs. Fell over on the way fortunately on to well padded arse. Came home .. cleared path outside house - something everyone used to do in the old days. I know we have a lot of oldies here but I couldn't believe I was the only one to bother. It only took a few minutes.
I fell again going to the paper shop and the snow is now sheet ice in parts. I was safer driving here to the library because it is so quiet and once got the half mile to the main drag the roads are clear. Pavements are not!!! I need ot dig out my walking boots as the fake UGGS are cosy but not grippy enough...
Suppose I shouldn't really have come out but I have missed out on a work assignment to someone who lived closer so was a bit fed up. Going to get some circular needles and make a swallows and amazon cap... :D Also more salt.... in cash we get more snow. It kept the path clear last night when it was really parky.
