Split

by Jem Croucher

13 of 16 in the Jemverse ‘Venetian Vistas’ series

The sunshine in the harbour
as we arrived in Split
looked promising for our last day
to make the most of it

Montenegro yes and Italy
have been lovely at behest
but I have to say Croatia
has for me been quite the best

Of Venetian Diamonds

by Jem Croucher

11 of 16 in the Jemverse ‘Venetian Vistas’ series

Sailing east from a sunset
as rich as could be
We continued our cruise
here in North Italy

Venice passed golden
and we waved a goodbye
as a moment we shared
with a tear in the eye

Sailing into Venice

by Jem Croucher

9 of 16 in the Jemverse ‘Venetian Vistas’ series

Sailing into Venice
is there a better way?
I certainly cannot think of one
on this this lovely warm Monday
The sunrise golden in the east
The sky an azure blue
As slowly through the islands
we sail to this fine view

Beach

by Jem Croucher

There’s a lady with a cup of tea
who comes from time to time
Sits on the shingle for a while
when the weather’s fine
And sometimes when the wind is strong
colour fills the sky
as kites takes to the sea and surf
and pass me swiftly by

I am your words

by Jem Croucher

I am your words
there for the taking
Sometimes accepted
other times not
Yet always captured
For I am yours
and always will be
To use as you will
and leave as you choose

Ever Present

by Jem Croucher

The sun has shone for several weeks
and England’s seen no raining
But I’ve been on the beach most days
so you’ll not hear me complaining

A child of summer, this for me
is perfect beyond measure
Blue skies every day and warmth
revealing summers’ treasure

Fields of Lavender

by Jem Croucher

We walked in fields of lavender
on the sixth day of July
On a summer evening
beneath a clear blue sky
Lordington near Chichester
high on Sussex hills
to watch the setting of the sun
A cure to cure all ills

Under rainbows

by Jem Croucher

Walked home under rainbows
in a leaden sky
Gave me pause to wonder
as I hurried by
The hope left in that promise
all those years ago
With rain and shine a beauty
ever there on show

Diamond Days

by Jem Croucher

Some days are diamond
the sea and the sky
azure blue with the sun
up there on high

Some days are damond
more precious than gold
when a sunshine embrace
brings me in from the cold

by Jem Croucher

Felt quite low for several days
but then the sun arrived
Opened up the beach hut
glad to be alive
Wandered round the market
picked up a few cheap things
Watched the plovers playing
fishing on the wing

Painted (revisited)

by Jem Croucher

4 of 7 in the Jemverse ‘Beach Huts’ series

The day began with sunshine
so I popped down to the beach
armed with paints and brushes
and a long pole for to reach
the top bit of the beach hut
as it needs a lick of paint
It took me several hours
but a craftsman I just ain’t

Stretching to infinity
Beach huts on Beach Green
Painted many colours
Brightest you’ll have seen

a haven on the beach
A little bit of paradise
there in easy reach

And here stand I

Like a whisper

by Jem Croucher

Icing sugar on the road
a dusting overnight
the sun glow in the eastern sky
still a glorious sight

Cold there is no doubt of that
minus six and falling
but the crystal air is lovely
on this chilly winter morning

These Streets…

by Jem Croucher

These streets are mine
a thousand times I tread them every day
I know them well, I hold them dear
with words I cannot say

These streets are mine
Familiar, I know them every one
be that when cold and raining
or brighter in the sun

Breathtaking II

by Jem Croucher

2 of 5 in the Jemverse ’31’ series

The view up here on Devil’s Dyke
looking to the West
is I think in Sussex
one of the very best
In the fading distance
Chanctonbury Ring
and rolling up to that far point
the hills that make me sing
