It would better be left un-said
But time and again words arise framed
Boldly invading my un-wary brain
And sentence themselves to be read.... more »

Your image encases
My mind and my senses
Relentlessly chases... more »
From dungeons of icy-cold places

(For the girls) - Scene - Bedroom.
Who wants hot-rocking
Kits-off, full frontal
When I got you babe?
Do I want knicker-waving
When I got you babe?
Must I have sexy singing
From wide-eyed romantics
When I got you babe?
To me my handsome honey-bun
You're all of them rolled into one.
Come on let's have our bit...
Lying amid grass of perfumed green,
Cushioned with sun and calm of early morn,
From verdant lanes echo aloft the sound of the bell
Bidding me attend it s evocative toll
What solitary same sound has winged in byegone days
And fetched the faithful, young and old, to morning dues
It s sad and mournful clang, it s long and lonely call
Evokes a realm of pastness gone now and yet
