  • April Showers


    April showers bring May flowers,
    That is what they say.
    But if all the showers turned to flowers,
    We’d have quite a colourful day!
  • I Dream A World


    I dream a world where man
    No other man will scorn,
    Where love will bless the earth
    And peace its paths adorn.
  • I'll get one tomorrow - Recommended Poem


    Barber, barber, come and get me;
    Hairy torrents irk and fret me.
    Hair and hair again appears;
    And climbs like ivy round my ears.
    Hair across my collar gambols;
    Down my neck it wayward ambles.
    Ever down it trip it tickles;
    Yes, where it trips it tickles.
  • March - A Birthday Poem - Recommended Poem

     Croci in the snow

    My child as yet unborn, the doctors nod,
    Agreeing that your first month shall be March,
    A time of year I know by heart and like
    To talk about - I, too, was born in March.
  • May



    The wind is tossing the lilacs,
    The new leaves laugh in the sun,
    And the petals fall on the orchard wall,
    But for me the spring is done.
  • My Wife's a Winsome Wee Thing - Recommended Poem


    She is a winsome wee thing,
    She is a handsome wee thing,
    She is a lo'esome wee thing,
    This dear wee wife o' mine.
  • The Bluebell - Recommended Poem


    A fine and subtle spirit dwells
    In every little flower,
    Each one its own sweet feeling breathes
    With more or less of power.
    There is a silent eloquence
    In every wild bluebell
    That fills my softened heart with bliss
    That words could never tell.

  • Two Tramps in Mud Time - Recommended Poem

    Creative Commons - Phil Roeder 

    Out of the mud two strangers came 
    And caught me splitting wood in the yard, 
    And one of them put me off my aim 
    By hailing cheerily "Hit them hard!" 
    I knew pretty well why he had dropped behind 
    And let the other go on a way. 
    I knew pretty well what he had in mind: 
    He wanted to take my job for pay.
