Allotment II

by Jem Croucher

The allotment’s looking lovely
if I do say so myself
We’ve been doing lots of digging
‘Cos it’s quite good for our health
We’ve got some fruit trees growing
and have planted lots of seeds
And in between the watering
have been pulling up the weeds

Seagulls passing

by Jem Croucher

Sitting in the sunshine
by the river at high tide
A seagull came and perched
on the railings by my side
We had a little chat
as it seemed the thing to do
Passing a few pleasantries
before away he flew

Eight Miles

by Jem Croucher

Eight miles took us past the Ring
where the view as ever was
breathtaking in the sunshine
on the South Downs here because
(and I know that some will argue)
but this is heaven here on earth
A place that God has smiled upon
and with riches given worth

On the Downs

Up on the Downs
with sunshine and sheep
and lambs newly born
and hills always steep

and haze on the hill
and a marvellous view
that surprises me still

Capybara

by Jem Croucher

This week you’ll find me writing
about an animal each day
So here’s two Capybara
‘What’s that?’ I hear you say
The largest rodent in the world
and roughly four feet long
They’re related to the Cavie
and grunt or whistle for a song

Sheep

by Jem Croucher

This week you’ll find me writing
(continuing with a leap)
about an animal each day
and today concerns a sheep
We think of them as stupid
but I’m not having that at all
For I know they have intelligence
like this one on a wall

A glimpse of Spring

by Jem Croucher

fullsizeoutput_1a58

I caught a glimpse of Spring
on the ground the other day
as a host of flowering crocuses
gathered there to say
that the sunshine’s getting warmer
so it’ll really not be long
before the sound from every meadow
is the voice of Springtime song

The longest pier

by Jem Croucher

dscn2973

The longest pier apparently
in the world today
That’s Southend here in Blighty
not a lot more I can say

Apart from that it’s very long
stretching out to sea
The pier head barely visible
in the wide Thames estuary

Sun kissed

by Jem Croucher

With a cold foot forward, dressed up warm
against the chilly air
The grin upon my face resigned
and not for pleasure there
And yet the crystal air affords
despite the iron chill
A sun-kissed panorama that
is sure to cure all ill
