I Forgot To Tell Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

I Forgot To Tell

Rating: 4.9


I have heard that and I forgot to tell
Second day of Easter Holiday is a hell:
They told me through the phone:
Huge queues at Manchester Airport,
Heathrow already at 'near capacity'
with early international passengers
'sent to arrivals to wait'
and chaos at Dover with P&O Ferries suspended
check in queues reported
at Manchester and Heathrow Airports this morning
Staff shortages said to have contributed
to delays with travellers sat on planes

HGV drivers at Port of Dover
have also faced long waits
for two nights running
Suspended P&O Ferry service
and two DFDS ships also said to be out of action,

Well and woe
I think that I'll postpone,
my way to the telephone,
to buy some pleasant flights,
to land in a harmonious land
to enjoy my free Easterdays,

other days when it's easeful and peaceful,
I will certainly
fly again
enjoy again
of nature's Beauty
in all its simpleness
with a touch of frost
in my glass of aperitive-ness
