A love in verse

Head Over Heel

Performed by

You’re my beauty (boredom’s death!)

The beast maybe me, I don’t know

Or p’raps a frog who’ll suddenly grow

Into a prince (don’t hold your breath!)

I love your lips touching my own

Your darling head against my chest

And what is tenderest , what is best

You make in me – all dark thoughts flown

I’m prone maybe to finding fault

But when I think of your dear face

Recall the heat of your embrace

That tendency comes to a halt

And my heart turns a somersault. 



There’s a car, a train, a bus 

That will bring you back to us

When your stay away it's brief...


I passionately long to stand, hands in the bowl

Washing up, looking out onto our sunlit garden.

I long to see a cat move sleepily and pause
