One Way Love

Poem By Ernestine Northover

I saw him and I sighed with love,
He was tall, dark and divine,
His clothes, they fitted, like a glove,
I felt that he was mine.

His eyes were of the brightest blue,
His lips were mine to kiss,
If I'd been stuck to him like glue,
It would have been utter bliss.

He possessed such lovely dark brown hair,
With highlights sparkling through it,
This man was handsome, I declare
I loved him and I knew it.

But lovers we could not be at all,
Although he was Oh, so yummy,
He had no heart with which to fall,
He was just a shop window dummy!

The perfect ending, Ernestine! ! Good looks but no brain, you've probably met enough 'real' guys like that. Funny stuff! Brian
Brilliant twist to this, and so well done, Love duncan
I'm laughing out loud (haven't done that in ages) . Thank you Ernestine. You have an amazing talent for building up expectation and delivering a humorous finale.
Had he been alive he would have loved your sense of humour! Good writing. H

With this heart I'll greet you,
Anywhere you choose.

A Gentle Voice

Speak not, to me, of mundane things,
The daily chores, which dull the mind,
But converse with a gentle voice that sings,
As if all the golden thoughts you find,

A Distant View

A distant view
Can beckon you
To dream of unknown destinations
Where life has no more regulations

A Heart Is Surely Bound

With branches coated topside white with snow.
And blue the shadows stretched along the ground.
Trees adding sharpness, a wintry view on show,
With dazzling, flickering sunshine, such can astound

A Day In The Life Of - Me!

I wake up in the morning and pull back the curtains, wide,
And look out through the window to view the world outside,
To see if the sky is blue or grey, sunny or with rain,
And see if the postman's on his way with letters that contain,
