Jekyll And Hyde
For changes in human behaviour
I think that the biggest by far,
is the obsession and pride that we all have
in the wonderful motor car.
Sticky toffee apples, ‘Kiss me quick’,
tame donkey’s on the beach,
sand in hair, the seaweeds song,
and parsons try to preach.

the morning dew on the forest floor sparkles like a diamond mosaic,
The soft lament of bird song gently caresses the all but silent dawn,
and a damp and heavy mist clings to the forest,
A Girls Best Friend

through thick and through thin.
She’s there with you always,
as you lose and you win.
Missing You
As time goes by, I’ve missed so much,
your loving hugs and gentle touch.
As your bodies grow too fast to see,
I hope you’ll both remember me.
