Corona Virus

is this a dream
is this for real
I had a snuffle
it was no big deal
now a virus sweeps the land
its angry cross
and wont be banned
have we taken too much for granted
have the seeds of doom we have planted
greed, fast pace, changes all the time
people chanting in a different rhyme
overcrowding, pollution, greed, things we dont need
shopping, hopping on planes
did we plant the seed
families do we care
about the right things
or does media make us only like things that look good
young, healthy thats how it is
if you are old you just get in a tis
no patience for anything but those looks
what will happen
how will it end
will this self isolation drive us round the bend
is man meant to walk the earth
with all his power and all his worth
be struck down
with a tiny bug
floating in the air…
we are strong and some will survive
and it will go on this World
you will see
but this is a warning to us human beings
cos we have taken for granted
all we do
now too much pollution, globalisation, throw away society, in every sense, goods, rubbish, each other…
through the madness we have made a Spring of Hope will grow
and you do know
that life will go on…
we dont know where we came from
or which deity made it be
but thank God for what there is to be

double whammy

so we have a pandemic, corona virus sweeping the World and at the same time my last bit of crummy vision wants to part company…. how strong do I have to be…


I wake
The earth is still where I am
It is a mist
For me
It has all seemed chaos
Killer virus
Bad dream
I sit here alone
With the what ifs
And dream of happier days
Once had
And to come
They are coming
For sure

Daffodil Ditty

A beautiful trumpet tall and proud
brightly coloured
a shout of Spring!
The wintery weather is pealing away
to a much sunnier affray
daffodils crocuses peeping now
and bursting forth
to show us that there is a hope of regrowth
Buds and leaves and new shoots
All ready to bless the earth
Once again
The seasons roll round
and again its Spring
What a beautiful thing to see the flowers
While away the hours
as they grow
Let your troubles go away

Nearly Spring

Found some pretty crocuses in my garden today

Nearly Spring ditty

the wind may be howling
the rain is pouring
but a hint of Spring
is just the thing
we need!
the news is dreary
and makes us feel weary
viruses, wars, rain and more
people shouting
being cross
no patience
rats in cages
consuming more
whilst people die just on the floor
so … I will go in my garden
get away from it all….
a Spring bloom..
not very tall
is peeping through the grass
purple and pretty
a tiny bud
finding its way
to cheer the day
on this wet windy hue
where one can feel sad and blue
there is a lovely flower
to show its head
and prove with love
that hope is not yet dead!
look in your heart for something pretty
and even a bit witty
on this Spring hail
of a day….

River Flow

River Severn ditty, as its topical at the moment and haven’t done a ditty for a while…


River flow
so fast
dont wait for me
just rush past
the power of Mother Nature here
it is truly clear
does not worry
just will cause slurry
as it worms its way
round town
without a frown
just carries on
and on and on
in ferment
in such an enormous torment
takes no heed of your house
or a cat dog or tiny mouse
in your way
that doesn’t matter
the power of water
river growing fatter and fatter
River Severn runs down from a stream in Wales
and to the Bristol Channel it does hail
and if the rain does begin to fall
this river has no shame at all
the banks are burst and all is let lose
as the snow and rain fall on Welsh mountains
so stay indoors and peep through your curtains!
at the wintery weather will make your cheeks glow
Mother Nature as she does ebb and flow
Like a slippery snake
everything in its way it will take
and has no mercy…

Valentines Day

Will you be my Valentine
to me will you be true
I have a lovely rose
to bestow just for you
my heart is yours
my smile too to keep
there is no longer need to weep
as I hold you in my arms once more
no need to leave and walk out the door
to treasure each other
til time doth end
(you surely do drive me round the bend!)
but my love for you is unbounding
for this I shout aloud unsounding!
a lovely Valentine so true
you know it is so truly you
my lifelong love and true friend soul mate
lets make it together to the Pearly Gate!


The Swing

I wake in the morning

It’s 4amPeace

A bird sings

When I was a girl

I would get up and go in the gardenAnd sit on my swing

The peace

The dew twinkled on the grass

Like a million tiny fairies

There was magic

Quietly in that garden The swing creaked

As I swung higher and higher


I knew


No worries as a child

Now the chaos of my life is done

Too many things

Too many events

Too many people

Busy it’s been



As last days I seek in peace

None of it matters now

Just peace
