My Pleasures - Poem by Vanessa Hughes

Bacon, eggs, sausage and beans
Buying another pair of black jeans
Shutting the door on trouble-some teens

Sitting, chilling, in the park
Gazing at sparkling stars after dark
Peaceful mornings up with a lark

Early evening glasses of red
Giggling at something, someone said
Naughty day-dreaming laying in bed

Looking in charity shops for books and CD's
Pickled onions and crackers with very strong cheese
Hot sunny days with a mild gentle breeze

Chatting with people I know or just met
Warm sunny downpours, getting soaking wet
On Grand National days, having a bet

Buying the paper and having a read
Watching someone do a good deed
Being able to help someone in need

Drinking cups of Yorkshire Tea
Communal flowers for all to see
Green healthy grass and a pure blue sea


And there lies some reasons i'm grateful for
Each day on this earth, and want many more

    These are a few of your favourite things and a fine life affirming list it is too. Especially the wine and cheese and nature and sleeping and a good cuppa. You wouldn't be dead for quids. (Report) Reply
