Local Poems

Our Ancestors


Folk today want to know

who were their ancestors years ago

Some cannot trace them

to find out who they really are

I tell of one we can all trace

He was one of noble race

His ancestor was a man of fame

And King David was his name

Christmas Gifts


Pauline is watching her daughter Chris

writing out her Christmas list,

in the USA lives auntie Kate

must not miss early posting date.

I will start with baby Roy

I know he will like a special toy,

a car brother James has named

he will get some special games.


A garden at harvest is lovely to see

with veggies, fruits, flowers as full as can be

and roses ,chrysanthemums and hollyhocks tall,

neat little borders with verbena small.

Carrots, potatoes, beans, peas, and beet,

but only the best ware good enough to eat.

Living Alone


As the solitude of evening steals across the sky,

I often think of people who live alone as I,

Sometimes I shed a silent tear and then I wonder why?

Surely there must be better things than to sit alone and cry.

I think of all of my problems where can the answers be?

Surely not in shedding tears so I make a cup of tea,

Then I look around my humble home and  this is what I see,

The comfort of a friendly  hearth and sweet serenity.

Why Do We Die The Three Gardens


In the beginning God had a plan,

In the garden of Eden he put the first man,

Adam did wrong-tempted by Eve,

From this garden they both had to leave,

God said to both because of your lie,

All born on earth will now have to die.

The second is a garden, yes man is to blame,

It fills us with sorrow and such bitter shame

A Musical Family


We are a musical family

So getting gifts should easy be

But when I look for what they ask

Goodness me! No easy task

But I will do my very best

to get them all that they request

our Bett will want a clarinet
