 Welcome to My Poetry Site


Be a shame to spoil the treat

I know I shouldn't do it but I just felt so inclined

So I took a sneaky peek into the windows of your mind

Therein I found some knitting, some cardboard and some glue

A paper chain, some parchment and a photograph of you


I came across a menu, a special meal at home

Duck a l'orange, Atlantic prawns and wine from Cotes du Rhone

The kitchen needs a facelift, the car's been acting up

The tyres and oil need changing, the engine's running rough


The weather's getting warmer, goodbye to winter blues

You plan to buy a summer dress, you badly need new shoes

I didn't go much further, you flagged up thoughts of me

My birthday's coming up next month, be a shame to spoil the treat
