Ancient woodlands’ bequest

by Jem Croucher
The bluebells are blooming, it's that time of year
in the garden there under the tree
that gives shade from the sun
when their time has begun
for this lovely bright vision we see

Shoreham my home

by Jem Croucher
Through a gap in the bushes
I spied Shoreham town
nestled there under the Downs
twixt me and the sea
safe there in the lea
the bearer of treasure and crowns

by Joel Kravitz

if-i-had-a-dollar-for-every-time.

We all know and have used that expression about the recurrence of things that seem to find their way into our lives.
