.5. To Boot


Another cold crisp Sunday morn
A frost and cool breeze chill
Sky’s orange glow brings in the dawn
To crown far distant hill

My car with icy coating
Needs scraping prior to load
Today will be a short trip
Just three miles down the main road

By six o’clock the packing’s done
The screen now fully clear
I check out all my loading
And put car into gear

The deadline fast advancing
Past seven would be late
It’s not a game for chancing
Pitch seals a booter’s fate

Your stock is so essential
A mix with some for all
Pray stay away torrential rains
And clear my car boot stall

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
