Jacky Frost

Poem By Lucy Burrow

When Summers blue sky fades to grey
And swiftly ends the shortening day,
When coldness takes the flowers away
Ill dance the dance of winter!
Over hedges see me trip
To frost the leaf and haw and hip,
To petrify each sparkling drip
And dance the dance of winter.
Ill fade the roses red to white,
Redress the landscape in one night!
Make the cobwebs crisp and white
And herald in the winter.
I’ll tiptoe over lawns and trees
The water pipe I soon shall freeze,
Ill bring transport to its knees!
And turn all things to winter
In leafy Hollows, see me hide,
I herald in the Christmas tide
Where man keeps snug by fires inside
While outside, I am winter.

Bravest men we hailed them then
England sent her finest men
The war to end all wars to fight
A cause each one believed was right

She sort of spat it out
Mockingly
Her lined brow furrowed

Battlefield Tree

I’m the tree on the battlefield – a pitiful sight
I watch as the bullets fly to left and to right
I’m the tree that’s watched blood flow from every man’s heart
I’m the tree on the battlefield, half blown apart.

Mothers Prayer Against The Bullies

She leaves
For another day of
Sharpened claws,
Twisted by opinion,

Remembered?

Some in Khaki, Standing proud
Line upon line in village and town
They straight-back march past watching crowd
To remember.
