A love in verse

No Complaints

Performed by

I’m only cheerful cos I’m here 

In a room with you

Your sleeping breath is soft and dear

Your snores are graceful too 

Were I not here I’d be less glad

Not beating round the bush

Love doesn’t stop us feeling bad

And stressed by life’s long push

Love doesn’t turn us into saints

But I love you, you me

That’s all – enough though – no complaints

Just simply: let it be 


No You

All the fine fire sun sends down.

The leaving green, the heaving sea, the air 

Cool as a dream of snow in Africa...

Come Sunday

Think I’ll pour some homemade beer

To give myself a little cheer

It’s so cold and wintry here...
