Gold Star - 14,890 Points (Derby, England)

Peggy And Bill - Poem by Orlando Belo

My uncle and aunt
no longer can't
point me in the way
they did yesterday.

As a child they taught
me how I ought
to make my way
through life each day.

How to wash my hands,
to listen and understand.
To sit still in one place
without pulling a face.

The use of tableware,
why not to swear.
To say thank you and please,
and not my sister tease.

To walk erect and proud,
and not to speak out loud.
Good manners maketh the man,
and first impressions can.

However, deceptions may appear,
by sight, or by ear.
Words come second to actions
and physical attractions.

How to enjoy a good laugh,
and also a bath.
To be clean in thought,
and to cause no hurt.

To kneel by my bed,
when prayers are said.
To sleep each night
without a light.

I miss those good times
of nursery rhymes.
Of climbing the wooden hill
with Peggy and Bill.

Sadly, those days are gone
for they have moved on,
but they have left me
more than just a memory.
