In the garden with Chris

Sunday in the garden
with jazz and sun and beer
And family, conversation
pavlova and good cheer
Laughter on the Springtime air
from here this afternoon
We’ve been out since breakfast
and evening’s coming soon
But Chris Barber and his clarinet
still has a voice to hear
so we’ll all stay a little while
and have another beer

Shocktoberfest

We all went to Shocktoberfest
up at Tulley’s Farm
to be scared witness in the dark
whilst keeping free from harm

The men with chainsaws all were there
as were the scary clowns
But loud was all the laughter
to keep away the frowns

The hayride though the orchard
was probably the best
But truth be told we all enjoyed
each moment of the rest

Shocktoberfest in Sussex
comes round once a year
But it is simply brilliant
to couple cheer with fear

The Shocktoberfest Scream Park at Tulley’s Farm has been voted as the UK’ s best. We went last night.

Laughing

The bigger the waves
the louder my shout becomes
Laughing on the shore

Sharing

I am laughter and fun
and everything good
Which if you look around
as you know that you should
You will as I do
find that most everywhere
there is laughter and fun
with a duty to share

Words about Seagulls

I have written of seagulls
(Well, I would, wouldn’t I?)
As, living in Sussex
you’ll oft hear their cry

They’re as much of a part
of a life by the coast
as the people who live here
The sea playing host

They’re loud and they’re boisterous
with exuberant glee
Born from the thrill
we all get from the sea

And I love every one of them
living down here
As their call and their antics
bring laughter and cheer

So here’s to the seagulls
up there in the clouds
I’m pleased I live with you
May my words do you proud

A soliloquy for Christmas

A soliloquy for Christmas
with a little introspection
Thinking of the year that’s been
in pensive contemplation
And looking forward to the next
anticipation growing
For all the promise that’s in store
A smile, as I’ve the knowing

This Christmas morning silence
affords a moment still
For soon there will be laughter
with gifts exchanged at will
And then there will be merriment
The epitome of joy
Christmas with the family
with promise to deploy

A Christmas eve walk

The day of the eve before Christmas
and all of us out for a walk
Taking in Sussex, the river and downs
for a jolly good laugh and a talk

Conversing about the things we have done
whilst out in the fair countryside
Dusting off cobwebs, eight miles or so
Family and friends to confide

And much later on at ‘The Lion’
we’ll put up our feet with a beer
The laughter is sure to continue
as we celebrate good Christmas cheer
