Anticipation III

Anticipation is
a marvellous thing
especially when coupled
with enjoyment to bring
I’ll give you example
in these few words here
of something that’s bound
to bring lots of cheer

For in just two more sleeps
we’ll be on our way
for a seven-day cruise
on a week’s holiday
We’ll be flying to Spain
then off for a sailing
The Mediterranean
climes for regaling

The Rock of Gibraltar
Portugal too
in a sea that is bound
to be lovely and blue
The ship’s called the ‘Spirit’
from the Thompson cruise line
And we know that the weather
will be balmy and fine

And as my pen is sure
to be travelling with me
there’ll be poetry here
for you all to see
For each place that we visit
and the things that we do
will be captured in words
and repeated for you

Happy Birthday Emily Rose

We have a birthday in our house today
it makes us feel quite old
For nine and twenty years ago
when it was pretty cold
a daughter was our first born child
in Brighton in the snow
Back in the last century
It seems so long ago

I wonder where those years have gone
they’ve happened pretty fast
Nine and twenty of them go
to history and the past
But what a joy they all have been
we’ve had joy and we’ve had tears
And adventures in the growing up
we’ve seen across the years

And now as a result of that
we really are quite blessed
to have four grown up children
and each of them the best
Birthdays are in celebration
a really joyous time
So today we’ll raise a glass to
the eldest, first in line
