Snowed In

rating is 4

Margaret Land, 12 July 2010 16:28

The snow lay thick upon the ground,I felt isolated and housebound,Then a gentle knock at the door,A neighbour going to the local store,Asking if there was anything I need,Bread, milk or a paper to read?Having friends so kind and sincereIs the reason why I like living here.

Good Intentions

Lynda Kettle, 12 July 2010 16:27

My family laughWhen I smile and sayThat come the new yearI’ll be tidy each day. I won’t leave my clothesIn a heap on the floor,Nor hang underwearFrom the bedroom door. My shoes will be putIn their rightful place,My collection of socksWill have their own space. I’ll try to remember,When planning to cook,To stick my loose recipesInto a book. I’ll still ...

Easter to Easter

rating is 4

Josephine Brown, 12 July 2010 16:23

Eastertime is almost hereAnd with it brings a lot of cheer,Spring lambs, daffodils and snowdrops,Sunshine, ploughing and farmer’s crops. The winter snow has gone awayBringing forth the buds of May,Soon to follow is merry JuneWhen the cuckoo’s song goes out of tune. July brings, for some, a vacation in Spain,But many will stay at home, once againTo South coast, East ...

On the day I became a sixty-year old“Your life will be wonderful”, I was told.“Why did you say that?” I asked my friend.“You will get a bus pass, you can travel no end.” I had not thought about it before,Now I wanted to know a whole lot more.She explained exactly what I had to do,It sounded to me too good ...

Regret

Frances Delaney, 12 July 2010 16:14

Tomorrow we will walk, Mother, Where the air is sweet,Down in yonder meadowWith the Hawk’s Beard ‘neath our feet. Soon we will explore, Mother,A rocky cove on shore,Where pearls are strewn and seashells peerAnd rainbow droplets pour. At Easter we will ride, Mother,On a steam train slowAnd through the windows sleepilySee eerie street lamps glow. Next year, with luck, my ...

Beside the Sea

Elaine Baldwin, 12 July 2010 16:07

At the age of 76, and retired for 6 years, there is still no sign of realising my dream of living by the sea. I have never written anything before, but my yearning is so strong that I managed to put these few thoughts into rhyme. Oh how happy I would beIf I could live beside the sea,To languish on ...

My Old Valentine

rating is 4

Dorothy Bassett, 12 July 2010 16:03

Tired after work,Relaxing in your chair,I realise how much you mean to meAs I watch you sleeping there. Our first flush of youth is over,The years have come and gone,But still you are as dear to meAs the day God made us one. Glasses slipping off your nose,Your hair is thinning now,Laughter lines around your eyesAnd furrows on your brow. ...

Old Age - What's That?

rating is 4

Christina Kelly, 12 July 2010 16:02

Age is just a number, I’m sure you’ve heard it said,But they don’t say which number – that number’s in your head.My birth cert says I’m 70, but my head says 22,I’m going to belive my head, ‘cos I’ve got some living to do.I haven’t time to sit around and just grow old and fat,And you won’t find me in ...

We do not really understand,As children with our needs, The way she cultivates our worldAnd clears out all the weeds. How ...
