A Selection Of Senryus - Poem by Ernestine Northover

Come dance to the drum.
Follow the steady heart beat,
By tapping the feet.


Candle's a symbol,
Flickering in the darkness.
The light of our world.


Soldiers go to war
Fighting for their dear country.
We remember them.


Choose a football game.
Two teams, try to score on a
Big green arena.

    Dear Ernestine
    For me, this was one of your greatest pieces.
    Great moral code of coduct.
    Love...Duncan
