Things I Like - Poem by Angela Wybrow
Birdsong floating down from the trees;
The sun on my arms; a cool summer breeze.
Carnations, cats and cockleshells;
Windmills, wisteria, old wishing wells.
London, lobscouse, lemon and lime;
Compelling stories and poems which rhyme.
Pink coloured wafers, penguins and puffins;
Manchester, milkshake and chocolate muffins.
Hedgehogs, honeycomb, hot buttered toast;
Conkers, confetti, being down by the coast.
Old locomotives with their steam a-puffing;
Crisp onion rings and chicken with stuffing.
Daisies, daffodils, dolphins, dragonflies;
The moon at night and clear, starry skies.
Waterfalls, wind-chimes, a rushing weir;
Otters, swans, robins, a herd of red deer.
Kingfishers, castles, bright canal boats;
Jammie dodgers, doughnuts and warm duffle coats.
Poppies, pizza, pandas, and Oriental fans;
Seagulls, seahorses, and soft, silken sand;
Snowdrops, snowflakes, rainbows and seals;
Wood-smoke, weeping willows, waterwheels.
Butterflies and ladybirds with their painted wings;
Cherry blossom and lambs which leap in the spring.
Triple choc cookies and swirly cupcakes,
Buttercups, bluebells, crocuses, and shimmering lakes.
Squirrels, red foxes, a nice Sunday roast –
These are the things which I like the most.
