Cillarear!

Her name was White, but now it is Black,
any day, anywhere, she could you `Cillarsmack`
she’s bubbly, she’s luverly-`a lorra, lorra fun`,
with no fuss she’ll `move mountains`-get any job done,
families parted, dear ones gone missing for many a...

Drayton jottings.

Auntie Alice, in Kings Avenue, regularly seen,
Out on her front doorstep, she kept it clean,
The `raddled` red stone was buffed to a shine,
`Old fashioned traditions`, here continued, so fine.

People should care.

people should care.
 
People should care-but just who says so,
usually faceless businessmen and those ``in the know`
with no `axe to grind`-only profit to make,
why should they care, they don’t give but take.
Look at our world with supposed valu...

Eventide.

The special time of the day when `Mother nature` prepares to `close the blinds`-the world is hushed-the anticipation of a new day beckons the other side of night.

`Desperate and Dan(the ugly sisters?)

Was it a piece of cheese, too much sherry or an onion, perhaps?
I had a dream last night-(more a nightmare) `bout two local chaps,
Reg and Bob Young -I call them Tendring`s own `Ollie and Stan`,
in our seasonal panto`- playing the ugly sisters-...

Des O`connor-`he makes that throat talk`(I think I`m a fan`?)

Des`-dear old Des`, yes, I think I`m a fan`,
now you`ve been popular longer than Peter Pan,
but where Pan`s just fictional, of this there`s no doubt,
`our Desdemona` is definitely no `cardboard cut out!`
In halcyon days, when we only had black...

`Free as a bird?`

When I was youngster with very few cares, I used to daydream that I could fly,
up in the blue, soaring amongst cotton wool clouds ,landing on steeples so high,
this carefree existence and the ultimate freedom to travel anywhere surely brings
so ...

The soldier.

In a drawer. long forgotten. a `dog eared`,faded photo, discarded lies,
amongst papers with all manner of documents. and former` contracted ties`,
the sepia colour slowly disappearing-dissolving back to original state,
before it was exposed to ...

Snow

Little children gaze at snow laden skies,
See the anticipation in those eager eyes,
Then, when it finally arrives-unbounded joy,
childhood memories return for each `girl and boy`.
Snowball fights,snowmen,snow everywhere,
And, though freezing cold...

St Mary and St John-Kirkley.

St Peter and St John-Kirkley.
In Suffolk quite near to the coast-is the amalgamated church of St Peter and St John,
alas `building John` became redundant, so it`s here that sacred worship carries on,
out in the little rustic church yard where for...

St Mary the virgin-East Bergholt -Suffolk

`Timeless and immutable`, yet simple beauty, eternal testament to the Lord,
through the annals of time, subsequent worshippers have, with one accord,
praised and honoured values held in the highest of esteem, then handed on,
as a competitor in a r...

Old tyme courtesy.

Old tyme courtesy.
Today I saw a fella who, touched his cap when he saw me,
it used to be fashionable and as polite as `afternoon tea`,
this lovely old time courtesy has all but gone from our view,
-it is still observed by gentlemen who, these...

`Mother`(gay icon!)

Mother-the up to date story?
Mother, once a `gay` icon at the very pinnacle of her scene,
Now lies, like Titanic, on her bottom- yesterday’s `Queen`,
she’s seen it all, and in her time, mincing here and there, done much.
(even berated lesbians, wi...

Titanic-a gracious lady.

Titanic-a gracious lady.
Titanic-there she lies amid the dark and the gloom,
all around her, eerie silence, in a deep watery tomb.
They said she could not fail-fashioned by 'hand of man',
but the ocean's elements claimed her and the downward jour...

Grey days

Grey Days
Grey days, bleak skies full of doom,
  Shadowy figures, lost in the gloom,
  mist blowing in from the becalmed silent ocean,
Like an old faded `movie`-played in slow motion,
this `candy floss` ca...

summer

Summer
Summer-a time of contentment, warmth, general well being and blue skies,
long carefree days, where hazy sunshine lifts our souls to new highs,
up in the Heavens, jet planes` exhaust streams gently `criss cross`,
and `cotton wool` clouds ...
