Summer Break

Sitting in the garden

Playing with a ball

As Mum or dad

Call out – from beyond the hall

Excitement awaits – we’re off to the museums!

Down goes your head – you don’t want to see ’em

Of course, its not like you’re grateful – you’ve been there before

Up with your classmates – till gone half past four

The holidays are for fun – out in the fresh air!

! You’ll be going somewhere sunny soon – but you don’t care! !

Anticipate

Sat in the classroom of Melwood

an old team captain is watching the lads

kicking a ball around the field

he’d once said “you never win anything with kids”

but that was before he’d watched them

lift up a number of trophies

and saw one of his number become a millionaire

Anticipation

As you know, there’s a day in the year where endless

Numbers of children up and down the land

Take to their beds (early)

In the hope that in the wee hours of the

Christmas season starting, they’ll get a chance to

Inspect what’s been left under the decorations.

Presents, delivered by mr claus

After he’s landed his snow covered sleigh and entered the house

To the little ones, its the pinnacle of all those days

In school and at home – being good

Of course – by the time he gets here they’ll be asleep – coming from the

North Pole with his Naughty and Nice List.

Waves

Another poem with an Olympic theme, seeing as we are approaching the Rio Games in Brazil.

It was basically a write up of the build-up and expectation, over the time i was helping out as a spectator services team leader during the Football Competition in Manchester.  I’ve put it into some kind of verse!

Waves

by Brian F Kirkham

August 2012

 

Olympic fever landed on Northern Shores

As a flame from Olympus passed every town and city

And it Came in Waves

 

We watched as excitement slowly arrived

Anticipation of what was to come

And it Came in Waves

 

Small Children – drawing in th’street

pictures of all the worlds athletes –

performing superhuman feats

and they came in Waves

 

From Lands end to John O’ Groats

People on Bikes, Cars, Planes and Boats

Landed in Britain and based themselves around

Britain’s cities, villages and towns

Building the waves

 

And as Team GB did their Best

Wearing that now familiar vest,

Every country became a guest

as they arrived in waves.

 

Spectators All, raised a cheer

and family members dried happy tears.

As athletes showed – they had no fear

and Bronze, Silver and Gold appeared

In Waves
