    Shes a wonderful poet, and one of my favourite ones. She writes with a lot of feeling and has that knack to convey it to the reader. Keep writing Francesca as I love what you write. Bob

    I can't cook up a fish pie like her - no way - and I couldn't drive as far as her without getting wasted.... but why she wants to drive all the way there.... oh she must have her reasons.... and I certainly couldn't find the multitude of angles on the nitty gritty of life she manages to somehow, nor express them with the same level of insight, compassion, variety of styles and quirky humour that she does. No way.

    Come bubble with her many readers, shedding tears in laughter or in deep empathy as she breaks your heart. A very fine poet and a lovely human being. xxx jim

  • Tara very irritated with PH injustice (4/22/2007 12:21:00 PM)

    Writing always from the hip or the heart or both; variously engaging, entertaining, thought-provoking, wistful, funny, clever, spirited, erudite. Always top rank. And a beautiful person too, inside and out. I remain a Number One fan. t x

    Impressive, thoughtful, intense, loving, sometimes angry words pervade your work. You have a terrific handle on the human condition. Thanks for sharing your work with all of us and kudos.

Best Poem of Francesca Johnson

A Temporary Man

A temporary man
be a good distraction
when filled with action
of the physical sort,
a real sporty sport.
Any port in a storm,
so they say.


a permanent man
be a true mate,
her best friend
who's willing to lend
a helping hand
day or night,
do what's right,
hold her tight
and just love her,
and love her,
and love her.........forever.

Read the full of A Temporary Man

Lord Ledgie Of The Cut

Lord Ledgie, paintbrush bristling in his hands
Introduces himself,
“You can call me Ledgie, John or anything you like
but I’m known as Lord Ledgie, ” he says.
Tall and imperial with long flowing locks
And a battered old hat,
Sartorially inelegant but suitably attired
For his stature and eccentricity.
His Peacock lies still, silent, purple and proud
