Waiting III

by Jem Croucher
Sat in the hospital waiting room
there with Sal for moral support
on a very cold winters' morning
('cos it's the right thing and I ought)

Here for an eyesight inspection
post-op (trust everything's good)
'cos we're not as young as we were
and things don't work quite as they should

Wednesday Sedoka

by Jem Croucher
Wednesday morning and
midweek meandering brings
the curl of lips and knowing
that the weekend looms
with time for being me and
for not suffering the fools

The thick and the thin

by Jem Croucher
Around a table with Cluedo and Red Leicester cheese
with good conversation, precious days these
Laughter and merriment the six of us here
these are the days for which we all cheer
As it's all about family and closeness together
for the bad times and good, the known and whatever
For we all are as one, best of friends and of kin
arms linked with a smile through the thick and the thin

Of shillings and treasure revisited

by Jem Croucher

6 of 12 in ‘The of…’ series from Jemverse 2022

I watched the shilling spinning
it was mine in no small measure
Enough to buy two Matchbox cars
to hold and keep and treasure
The fingers twisted blithely
as they caught and spun again
but I saw no abandon
found no one there to blame

Of rust and gold revisited

by Jem Croucher

2 of 12 in ‘The of…’ series from Jemverse 2022

And to these days when all I hold
is flecked with rust or painted gold
I know which of these I prefer
So to the gold I will defer

The rust it takes a second place
Resting with its fall from grace
Yet not forgotten all these things
as each have given cause to sing

Birmingham Penguin

by Jem Croucher
Met a penguin on the street
in Birmingham city centre
he wasn't saying much but then
I'm not sure he was meant ta'
'Cos he was simply standing there
looking rather splendid
so as with penguins everywhere
he was one I then befriended

Life in words (reprise)

by Jem Croucher

Concluding ‘The Word II’ series from Jemverse (10 of 10)

I like writing poems
I write one every day
‘Cos there’s lots in life to write about
and it’s nice to have a say
I’ll write about the sunshine
and I’ll write about the sea
I’ll write about ‘most anything
and sometimes simply me

A place to be

by Jem Croucher
There's a Millennium Falcon built in Lego on the side
my drum in the far corner which I banged loud with Pride
Evidence of music which is a passion as you'll know
my PS Five and TV - this is a place I go
to while away the hours that I have when being me
be that music, games or writing - it is a place to be

A good nap

by Jem Croucher
I'm curled in a circle in my little bed
on the floor in the room where I rest my head
when I'm not barking or running instead
as mostly I need a good nap

I'm curled and I'm comfy and that's a no-brainer
as with anything else I'd be quite the complainer
for comfortable snoozes I'm a canine campaigner
as mostly I need a good nap

Sometimes a rest

by Jem Croucher
Had a weekend of days enlongated to fit
five of the then actually, welcome to whit
which I'd planned for myself thinking of it
as a rest is needed sometimes

Planned nothing save being the best of me
five days to do little but lounge and be free
which all of you workers will know and agree
as a rest is needed sometimes

Another Elbow day

by Jem Croucher
I've had several of the 'one' days
to see me right this year
the 'Elbow' sense of wonder
for a dose of joy and cheer
But this morning throwing wide
the curtains in my room
the autumn sunshine out there
made it feel like it was June
So I had an 'Elbow' moment
and put it into play
seized and used to fulness
throughout this perfect day

London tales #5

by Jem Croucher
For some it might seem strange to sit in a pub alone
especially in London when I'm several miles from home
but overhearing conversation, snippets caught as people chat
is a pleasant way to pass the time when with a pint in fact
