There aren’t many poets that would write a whole book on humorous poetry. The Bright Side of the Coin, ISBN 978-0-9575136-0-0. You’re reading about a light hearted author who likes to see the funny side of life. In book shops the shelves are full to bursting with serious poetry and although that sort of poetry has its place the funny stuff seems to have taken a back seat. I found that it is the ... more »

Phil Ward Poems
Girl with the Smiling Eyes
My heart skips a beat when you turn on your smile, Cos I haven’t seen you for such a long while, Those little wrinkles on the side of your nose, Are the cutest signs of our love that grows?
Life’s Twists and Turns
Their love could not be stronger, It stood the test of time, Happiness reigned longer, The more their lives entwined.
My Comfort Blanket
On a cold and frosty winters night, There’s nothing more than I desire To wrap a blanket good and tight, Around me sat before the fire,
Back in the Black
John would look in the mirror and stare, At the thinning of his hair, Making wishes, needs and wants, For a thatch upon his bonce.
I love you so much I can't be without yo...
I sit and watch the world go by, I drink a beer and give a sigh, I have a smoke and close one eye, And sit and watch the world go by.
Meeting Old Friends
Perched high on a cliff overlooking the sea, A black-headed gull was peering at me, I’d come to meet some old friends of mine, At a place that I love where I can be free.
Sunny Blue Skies
Chillaxing on a Sunday morning, Close my eyes and can’t stop yawning, Sunny blue skies overhead, Sunny blue skies in my head,
Skating On Thicker Ice
Can you spare some coins from your change? My life’s in a mess and I’ve got nothing left, I’m all that you see sleeping rough on the street, And the people I meet just couldn’t care less,
If I eat my carrots can I see in the dark? If I finish my spinach can I wrestle a shark? If I eat all my crusts will my hair grow curly? If I don't eat sweets will my teeth stay pearly?
Our Pet's Pets
Suddenly our old cat's a spring chicken, He's leaping about like a kitten, It seems much more frequent, The need for some treatment,
Healing the World
Ignition, spedition I’m a bullet from the sky, I’m your flash of inspiration and eureka I cry, Master of the airwaves with my healing lightening flash, I’m faster than the speed of light, through galaxies I dash.
Can you lend me?
Can you lend me a quid Sid? I'm a bit short of funds at the moment, It'd make me really happy if you did, It may not be a lot to you but if you only knew,
Your last flame.
Although my home was no bigger than a box, You always claimed I was your perfect match, You took me out a few times but nothing came of it, Then the last time,
You can't win
When I was a baby I couldn't talk, Give a few months and I managed a squawk I learnt the few words you taught me to say, You encouraged my learning every day,

Girl with the Smiling Eyes
My heart skips a beat when you turn on your smile,
Cos I haven’t seen you for such a long while,
Those little wrinkles on the side of your nose,
Are the cutest signs of our love that grows?
You kiss Mona Lisa’s on my wanting lips,
You’re an Angelo sculpture to my finger tips,
My heart is so sad when I am away,
How I long to be with you for just one more day.
You’re the girl of my dreams and I love you so much,
There’s magic between us the moment we touch,
An angel from heaven a gift from the skies,
My beautiful girl with the smiling ...
