Well, this is the best I can do... I have only one poem that I wrote as a kid.  I don't know how old I was - just that I was a teenager... 'Tis a bit simplistic, but here it is, nonetheless...

Today is a day for fun and frolic
For running and dancing and skipping along
Today is a day to be euphoric
A day for a jolly old song.

Your rhythm and flow was clearly perfection from the beginning Nan ... even in just these 4 lines!  Wonderful!

Challenge well met in 4 sweetly penned lines, a true poet from the start Nan.  Thanks for sharing this with us!

Best wishes,
/Kit

Nan,

you might not believe this, but I needed to hear this just now. Must have woken up on the wrong side of the bed, thanks for the reminder of the good side!

NAN, such wisdom.

though in my neck of the woods I will have to that inside because it raining really heavily.

lovely poem.

"I've been too honest with myself I should have lied like everybody else"-Richey Edwards

"Take nothing but pictures. Leave nothing but footprints. Kill nothing but time".

Baltimore Grotto

"Libraries gave us power
Then work came and made us free
What price now for a shallow piece of dignity"
Nicky Wire, A design for Life.

manic street preachers

La Tristesse Durera (Scream to a Sigh)
"Life has been unfaithful And it all promised so so much
I am a relic I am just a petrified cry Wheeled out once a year, a cenotaph souvenir
The applause nails down my silence
La tristesse durera
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
I see liberals I am just a fashion accessory
People send postcards
And they all hope I'm feeling well I retreat into self-pity, it's so easy Where they patronise my misery
La tristesse durera
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
I sold my medal
It paid a bill
It sells at market stalls Parades Milan catwalks
The sadness will never go Will never go away
Baby it's here to stay
