A day of my own to enjoy (poem)

The freedom of a day

A day of my own to enjoy

Let the breeze blow through my hair,
Upon this day, clear and bright.
My time is my own to bare,
I am off to find some new sight.

Maybe a walk to the park,
With its woodlands by the lake.
There’s hours yet before its dark,
And plenty of paths to take.

There’s a one-day antiques fair,
With stalls in the playing field.
I could wander around there,
And see what goodies they yield.

I could treat myself to tea,
There’s that canal pub to try.
Let them bring the food to me,
As I watch the boats go by.

Perhaps I’ll head to the beach,
And walk barefoot in the sand.
That old lighthouse, I could reach,
If I walk round the headland.

I could go to the cliff top,
In time to watch the sunset.
At the food van I could stop,
Where a coffee I can get.

In the end it matters not,
Which out of all these, I choose.
For this free day I have got,
So in the end, I cannot lose.

The glory of nature – Noon (poem)

Nature is alive

The glory of nature – Noon

Let the noon sun light up the day,
As the green leaves grow in its light.
Let the swifts and the swallows play,
Swirling in suits of black and white.

Let the squirrels race through the trees,
Searching for nuts that they can eat.
Let the tides pull upon the seas,
Engaging with the moons heartbeat.

Let the butterflies bring beauty,
With their colourful wings on show.
Let the bees buzz on the fruit tree,
Collecting nectar as they go.

Let the grass in the meadows sway,
As the noon breeze touch the flowers.
Let natures glory shine on this day,
Whether it be sunshine or showers.

The glory of nature – Dawn (poem)

A new dawn has arrived

The glory of nature – Dawn

Let nature rise up in glory,
With the coming of the new sun.
Let the birds sing out their story,
For natures day has now begun.

Let the dawn call upon the mist,
To begin this day in shadows.
Let the deer browse through the forest,
As the cows graze in their meadows.

Let the hedgehogs go off to sleep,
As their night of foraging ends.
Let the willow tree gently weep,
As the river flows round its bends.

Let all the creatures of the day,
Greet this new dawn, so fresh and bright.
Let nature find a better way,
Travelling from dawn until night.

Blue skies from Storm clouds (poem)

Clear skies return

Blue skies from Storm clouds

A touch of Blue,
Is now in view,
Are those grey storm clouds departing at last?
Just a small zone,
It stands alone,
Does it mean this storm is now in the past?

It seems less dark,
Not quite so stark,
There’s another patch of blue I can see.
A patchwork sky,
Now seen up high,
From those storm clouds, the sky is breaking free.

More blue than grey,
A brighter day,
Even the sun is now showing its face.
It’s getting warm,
After the storm,
As the sun begins to dry up this place.

Now it’s just blue,
No clouds in view,
The storm’s but a memory in my mind.
The sun’s on show,
Out I shall go,
To enjoy the freshness it’s left behind.

The bridge over the river (poem)

The life around a bridge

The bridge over the river

Under the bridge the river flows,
Next to where the old willow grows.
Upon its branch a robin sings,
A duck swims pass with her ducklings.
A swan glides by, calm and serene,
Beside her, two cygnets are seen.
Under the bridge they pass on through,
Off to seek their food somewhere new.
Upon a rock a toad sits there,
While fishes swim everywhere.

Over the bridge the people walk,
Up in the air flies a sparrowhawk.
Children stop on the bridge midway,
Deciding just where they should play.
Under the bridge from the hot sun,
They set up camp and have some fun.
Across the surface, stones they skim,
Before diving in for a swim.
At four o’clock, their games they pack,
Then over the bridge, they walk back.

A touch of winter sunshine (poem)

Enjoying the coldest season

A touch of winter sunshine

A touch of winter sunshine,
On a cold and chilly day.
A moment of feeling fine,
Before the sun fades away.

A chance to see a clear sky,
Frost sparkling in the light.
Winter’s sun just passing by,
Before dragging back the night.

A moment of blue splendour,
So crisp, so bright, and so clear.
Winter’s world there to adore,
Before the dark night draws near.

A time of winter’s pleasure,
A freshness at winter’s noon.
A moment we can treasure.
Before the sun sets too soon.

A chance to refresh our lives,
Enjoy winter at its best.
Watch how the winter world thrives,
Before going home to rest.

A frosty early autumn dawn (poem)

Autumn is depositing its frost

A frosty early autumn dawn

The morning sun is rolling across the windowsill,
Nice and bright, but I can see outside there’s been a chill.
Frost has landed upon the lawn during this cold night,
Glistening in the early sun, autumns dawn delight.
Resting on the branches and decorating the wall,
Announcing on this dawn that autumn has come to call.

Putting on my old boots, I shall take a walk outside,
Just a gentle stroll, for it’s far too early to stride.
Leaving my footprints behind me as I wander pass,
The creatures of the night have left their own in the grass.
Upon a frosty branch a robin begins to sing,
The hibernators will soon be sleeping through to spring.

The leaves upon the trees glisten in the rising sun,
The change to their autumn shades has already begun.
This first frost will seal their fate, the trees will let them go,
Floating down to the ground, or to where the wind may blow.
The frost is now melting on this early autumn day,
Soon it will linger longer, now winters on its way.

What is a cat? (Cat poem)

Introduction to cats

What is a cat?

A cat is a creature covered in fur,
Captivating us humans with its purr.
It can be loving when it wants to be,
To give it a stoke, brings us harmony.
Upon our laps it will settle to sleep.
A loving creature is a cat to keep.

However, it is on the cats’ terms alone,
That its affection for us is ever shown.
It rules the home and decides just what to do,
And when it chooses too, it will ignore you.
It will sleep where it wants, then best left in peace,
As for its meals, it will insist on a feast!

Just why do we let our cats treat us so?
I am not sure that I will ever know.
Perhaps it is the way it makes me feel,
When it comes for a stroke after its meal.
The way its presence eases my strife,
When it comes to cats, I am hooked for life.

Night of glory (poem)

The world of the night

Night of glory

A night of glory,
Each star tells a story,
Twinkling like diamonds in the night.
The sky’s crisp and clear,
Brings the starlight near,
The wonder of the universe in sight.

Bats take to the air,
Their insects are there,
An owl hoots as it prepares to take flight.
Hedgehogs start creeping,
Hunting, and foraging,
All the wonders to be found in the night.

Lily-Low’s visit to the vet (cat poem)

Coping with a reluctant cat

Lily-Low’s visit to the vet

Come Lily-Low,
It’s time to go,
There’s really no need to put on such a show.
Please get in here,
Lily-Low dear,
You usually climb in when boxes appear.
Don’t run away,
Be good this day,
It will not be too long in there you will stay.

Oh, do get in!
You cannot win,
Stop trying to hide behind the kitchen bin.
I’ve got you now,
Stop that meow,
I will get this lid shut on the box, somehow.
At last, it’s done,
The lid has won
Now we’re at the vets, the check-up has begun.

We’re home once more,
Back through the door,
Just let me put your box down onto the floor.
Out you can get,
There’s no more vet,
See, there was no reason to get so upset.
Now let me be,
Can you not see,
That I’m exhausted and need my cup of tea.
