My Poetry

This is a display of my poetry. You can leave comments or your own poems. I agree not to use anyone elses poetry without permission and would require others to do the same.

I put my age on here 4 years ago. Instead of updating it every year, I shall just say that I was born in 1980 and you can work out how old I am. :) I am Mum to 2 children(both boys)who have been inspiration for much of my poetry. I have had several poems published in different books but I thought it would be nice to keep it all in one place. Unfortunately I don't have all of my older poetry so this will be mostly recent.

Frankie had the experts worried
His crawling and walking wouldn't be hurried
Waiting to be carried
To sit on someone's knee
Is so much easier thought Frankie
I'm sure you'll agree
Than trying to walk
Anyway, I'm busy
Learning to talk

Being helpless I've found
Gets them all running round
If I drop a toy, I won't fetch it
No, boy!

Making enough noise
Is one of my ploys
To get their attention
Then, I should mention
I get what I want

So you see
It's best for me
To pretend to be helpless
And worry them so
I won't let it show
They'll never know
It's my way of coping
I know they are hoping
I'll walk or I'll crawl
I won't try at all
Maybe later I'll try
But while my ploy
Is all I need
Why should I bother?
Why, indeed?

Silver Candle

A silver candle burning
To help me light me way
To guide me towards happiness
Each and every day.

A black one to absorb my fears
And take my darkest thoughts
To help me live with happiness
That I've so dearly sought.

My silver candle burning
With yellow flame so high and bright
To help me focus on the good things
Throughout the day and night.

Our dear BJ

But Y is BJ
On TV today?

That is an easy answer, BJ
Cos ther's no room
On the settee
