Global Warming

Poem By sylvia spencer

August rain running down the drain and it's
pitter patter on the window pane.
Skys painted like battle ship grey wondering
what has happened to the rest of the day.
Grass now green from the sun burnt turf.
weeds start growing in a total rebirth.
A summer heatwave now gone down the
drain as you sit and watch the rain do the
same.Summer holidays never seem to last
when September comes it's all in the past.
Kids back to school another costly event.
and that was the hot summer that came
and went. People will talk about the hottest
July ever, but when I was a kid they went on for
ever and ever. We had cold winters and our
summers were long and hot, but thanks to global
warming the whole worlds gone to pot.
Snow in countrys that never knew it existed
floods and hurricans being named and listed.
Weather paterns getting out of controll, so why
don't the world just swallow us whole.
We are sitting on a time bomb just waiting to explode
so come on lets pull together and lighten our load.

Comments about Global Warming

A very wise and timely poem. We have only one world and we should all try to take care of our little part of it. Cheers for your brave soul.Sylvia. Excellent write. Warmest regards, Sandra
Lets all do our bit, come on folks re-cycle it! ! This is great Sis thanks Love duncan X
Ahh, yes, Sylvie, I remember when winters meant snow and summers were, indeed, long and hot. Nobody has sledges any more, do they? I'm reading this as the rain is bucketing down and the weeds have completely taken over my garden, just like in your poem. Nice one. Love, Fran xx
Can't argue with your sentiment.

A Bunch Of Roses

I love life but does life love me when I have to cook
tea for a family of three.
One wants this and one wants that and between
those wants I have to feed the cat.

A Basket Of Goodies

Why do the the people call you Crabby
is it because your clothes are shabby.
Why have the people called you this awful name
I think their at fault and you are not to blame.

A Lonely Heart In A Thunderstorm

A lonely heart sets the table but is she a Milly,
a Betty or a Mabel. Tea, coffee, cakes and ale
but outside there blows a gale. Sash cord windows
rattling like chains, thunder and lighting tormenting her

A Wayward Life

Born out of wedlock,
with a chip on his shoulder,
one that was as big,
as a cliff face, boulder.

A Water Lord

See him hover, over river and pond
just like a fairy waving a wand. He looks
quite stunning this graceful thing, flying
around on brightly coloured wing.

A Cry For Help

Dont keep me hidden,
in this dark room,
please show me the sun,
so that I can bloom.
