I

A Hub of ideas

technology, reading, and leisure

pondering over

which of them will be read or listened to

First

Bag, ready to travel

North south east or west

journeying with essential items

things that cannot be left behind

at home

III

Tallest of the conifers

protecting the smaller plants

from the rain wind and snow

now covered

in snowflakes

Well worn Blanket

Salford 16th May 2017

Blanket

Back in Nineteen eighty two – i started taking this long woolly blanket to camp

Like many other scouts i stuck it at the end of my tents sleeping bag, and

As it got cold, i wrapped it round me to keep warm

Now, each camp i went to – i picked up a patch from the campsite – and these were

Kept on the woolly blanket…covering areas from Cumbria to Derbyshire – I

Even had a whole heap of locations such as

Torquay , paignton and brixham and these found a spare spot on my sleeping spot

Pick and Mix

Small Jelly Beans
Small fruit jelly beans in many colors.


#FOWC #Amount

Open up your bag and round,

your choice of treats for a shilling a pound.

Toffees and sweets from the east to the west

Tastes and sensations that’s surely the best

Bonbons of lemon and strawberry from France

Cola cubes and Chocolate if given a chance

Fruit gems and sugar mice and candied fruit drops

and liquorice or aniseed for your mum or pops

Don’t eat them all now, or else there wont be

Any room left in your tum for your tea!

School Bag

Back in the day,
we were inseparable –
You and I

We sashayed down
chequered tile corridors
turning male heads

I held your books
and improved your looks
as you waited in a bus stop nook

You kept me polished – nice and clean
in attempts for you to be seen
whilst girls looked on with eyes – green

Monday to Friday – I went from thin to fat
as teachers gave classes in this and that
and you got work – to take home to your flat

But now you’re grown up – with a good job
We’re still together – you’re no snob
holding assignments – from work and not school
and workmates agree – together we’re cool!

The School Bag

A personalisation of a girls school bag – although to be truthful it could just as well been a lads bag!

Back in the day,
we were inseparable –
You and I

We sashayed down
chequered tile corridors
turning male heads

I held your books
and improved your looks
as you waited in a bus stop nook

You kept me polished – nice and clean
in attempts for you to be seen
whilst girls looked on with eyes – green

and you got work – to take home to your flat

But now you’re grown up – with a good job
We’re still together – you’re no snob
holding assignments – from work and not school
and workmates agree – together we’re cool!
