I started writing poetry
A few years ago you see
Lines just popped into my head
I had to set them free.

I’d read lots of Henry Lawson
Banjo Patterson and Co
I thought it all pretty neat
And had to give it a go.

Sometimes the pen just skims along
Words flow out by the page
Other times I’d sit and think
And couldn’t make the grade.

No matter what the joys are
Or if the pain is strong
The words just tumble round about
And carry on and on.

I’ve written prayers and poetry
Farewells and ditties too
Of funny things that make us laugh
And those that make us blue.

After all it’s just a story
That’s written in a rhyme
And we all can tell our story
Until the end of time.


Blue forms are done
It’s time for fun
For holidays are coming
I’m going west
For play and rest
And lots of gentle sunning.
