Flow and Pearl

A young lady called Miss Flow
(whose mother I happen to know),
Is a very good girl
(unlike that Miss Pearl).
As all the young gentlemen know!

Possible Author Newsletter

A couple of days back, a colleague dropped me an email saying that she was moving on to pastures new, and asking that I keep in touch with news about my poetry.

My colleague’s email got me thinking (not for the first time), that I should, perhaps start an occasional newsletter concerning my poetry, books I have enjoyed reading Etc.

There are a fair few friends and acquaintences who enjoy my poetry but who do not visit my blog on a regular basis. Of course I can email friends on an informal basis. However this can be time consuming and its easy to forget to send an email to John or Jill unless you have a definitive list of interested parties to hand.

Of course a newsletter would need to comply with data protection legislation (The General Data Protection Regulations, GDPR).

I would be interested in the views of my readers as regards author newsletters. Do you write or read them? Also, if you would be interested in a newsletter please let me know.

At present this is just the germ of an idea which may not come to fruition. But it is, I believe worth exploring.

Kevin

“You’re a joker”, she said

“You’re a joker”, she said,
Doubling over in laughter.
“If you didn’t laugh
You would cry”
Said I.

And after
I felt proud
That I can still engage
With a girl, half my age
And make her laugh Outloud.

I hear Eliot’s footman snicker.
The stage
Lights flicker
‘Ere the curtain does fall
Covering all.

A Young Lady With A Beautiful Figure

A young lady with a beautiful figure
Said, “I will all gentleman’s offers consider.
I am of an ancient profession,
And confess to having no discretion.
But I do have a beautiful figure!”.

Sarah

A young lady whose name is Sarah
Has a reputation as a terrible stirrer.
She’s told everyone about me
And that naughty Miss Leigh.
But, have you heard this about Sarah? …

Express

When a young lady named Miss Bess
Said, “would you like to go express?”.
I said, “you ought to know
That I like to go slow.
Oh, you mean the express train, Bess!”.
