 ramblings and things


No, I don't write poems of nature.
It's not that I don't see and care,
being Yorkshire village child I was
used to natural beauty being there.
No, I leave that to my betters,
those students of Latin and Greek
who layer words with meanings
for readers to ponder and seek,
and no one is really sure
just what they meant,
their message, if any,
or what their intent

I just keep faith with my simple words
and things I know and understand,
being more an emotional being,
just a child, really, of the land.
In this world of discrepancies
I have everything that I need
even if not all l want,
and I can sit and read
those obscure works of my betters
and although I may not understand,
still have the pleasure and challenge
of having such works to hand.
