Biography of Jean Sheridan
I was born in Bermondsey just after the war. I went to grammar school. I left at 17 and went to work for LLoyds Bank in Lombard Street. I married at 21 and had two sons before returning to work as a secretary. I am now retired. My husband works in the travel industry, so I am fairly well travelled. He still works part-time as a Tour Manager.
Jean Sheridan Poems
An Old Lady's Poem
What do you see, nurses, what do you see? What are you thinking when you're looking at me? A crabby old woman, not very wise, Uncertain of habit, with faraway eyes?
The message about sunscreen Makes us all feel glum It seems we need to worry When we go out in the sun
Holidays are such fun So much to do for everyone A cliff to climb a sea to surf A game of golf upon the turf
A Trip To The Seaside
When the sun came out, we’d be gone To Camber Sands – Me, Mum, Dad and John Sandwiches packed and flasks that were filled With tea that tasted like pig swill
A Brighter Outlook
The house looks much cleaner The dust is not there No stains on the sink And no bits of hair
Summer 2007 Clouds full of rain, day after day
Clouds full of rain, day after day
Hailstones and thunder and cries of dismay
We look forward to summer, through winters so grey
And now that it’s here, there’s all hell to pay.
Roads look like rivers, and people despair
Their houses are flooded, they’re living upstairs
