An unspoken token.
Perhaps a ring,
Or some other sundry thing,
For a man to find
May cause his heart to sing,
Or ponder on why
Birds that fly
Leave a solitary feather
To remember them by.
A young lady whose name is Fay
Said “Valentines was yesterday.
I must confess
That I’ve lost my dress,
And mum’s hair has turned quite grey”!

A young lady whose name is Lou
Married a billionaire who was 92.
But when he fell down the stair
A police inspector called Claire,
Couldn’t pin it on that young lady Lou!
I am pleased to announce that I am now on Soundcloud. As of today (13/2/19) I have uploaded 4 poems onto my profile, all accessible here.
As Valentine’s Approaches
As Valentines approaches
Girls finger brooches
Wondering which one to wear.
“Is that dress
Or ought I
To show more thigh?”
Elsewhere, men with greying hair
And, reaching for the telephone
Make calls To girls who
(Strictly between me and you)
Have nothing to do
Other than to play
At Valentines, for a day.
