When a Young Lady Named Lake

When a young lady named Lake
Leapt out of my birthday cake,
I said, “you are witty
And more than just pretty,
And you have ruined my cake!”

While Drunk on the Finest Old Wine

While drunk on the finest old wine
I spied a young lady most Divine.
Her name it is Miss Spink
And she gave me a wink,
But perhaps that was merely the wine …!

I Know a Young Barmaid Named Lou

I know a young barmaid named Lou
Who pours beer through her favourite shoe.
I have a fetish
For Flair’s wet lettuce,
But the vicar he loves Lou’s shoe!

Just for the Record, Poems From a Time of Covid

I am pleased to announce that several of my poems have been included in “Just for the Record, Poems From a Time of Covid”.

Book Description

The Croydon Poetry Hour, was founded some years ago by Debby Grayson as a loose, inclusive network of people who meet regularly for the sheer pleasure of sharing the poems they have written, usually on a theme. During the Corona virus pandemic of 2020 – 2022, we did not set out to write about its impact as a group, but individually we produced poems arising out of our personal experiences, fears and hopes. The poems were written in a variety of styles and are evidence of the creativity that flows from giving poetry a try.

“Just for the Record, Poems From a Time of Covid” is available for £2.20 from Lulu and can be found here, https://www.lulu.com/en/us/shop/croydon-poets/just-for-the-record/paperback/product-d2w5wq.html?page=1&pageSize=4
