When a child I visited May

In her first flat as a newly wed

She wore a pretty half apron

Year’s later May visited my home

With husband

Spoiled daughter


Marriage tarnished.


Your Photo

Saw your photograph today

Wish you could stay

I’ll keep smiling

Saw your photograph today

Eternally smiling

A prince of the road

I will miss you always.


Lane Strolling Stranger

I stood in the lane

Thought provoking was the

Beautiful quiet of Sunday morning

The sun shone

A mans coughed returned me to

My present spot

I said hello

He gave a nod

A stranger dressed in a pinstripe suit

Flower in lapel

Hair turning grey

Cigarette in hand

Consulting the cards

They warned he would be dangerous.
