Away Day - Poem by Terry Donovan

Alarm bell rings
Blackbird sings
Sun greets open eyes
Sleep was clover
Now it’s over
Time to wake and rise.

Kettle, coffee,
Now I’m off e-
lated cos today’s the day
Suitcase ready,
By bye, Teddy,
Holiday, I’m on my way.

Strife behind me
You won’t find me
I shall hide and you shall seek.
I’ll be where
There is no care
In my own heaven one whole week.
