A love in verse

The Love That Lights

Performed by

Roar away my feisty snorer

Whilst I leave to have a pee

What could frighten an adorer

Lover of all aspects, like me?


Not that noisy serenading

Nor the stirring in the trees

I would hate to hear them fading –

Nature, nasals, they all please


Branches weaving, waving, catch the

Morning sun but that good blaze

Can’t surpass or even match the

Love that lights you all my days


Not Perfect

Though your sweet voice frightens the cat

I cannot have enough of that

Stentorian snores disturbing air...

Blossom White – for Alison

The tree – again! – it’s roaring white

Firing snow into the air

Lean long branches flash, declare...
