Nine bells

by Jem Croucher

It blew nine bells again last night
But you’d never know this morning
As, when the night time clouds had cleared
A lovely day was dawning

Summer’s End

by Jem Croucher

I’m told that come September
England’s summer’s at an end
But I’m not ready yet, I’ll tell you
To say goodbye to my good friend

It’s really nice down here

by Jem Croucher

20160907_151229

I walked the long familiar beach
where houses made of wood
formed from disused railway stock

All are now long gone of course
but their garden walls remain
Reminding me that wind and sea

The thing about the sun

by Jem Croucher

Chance to get the kayak out
Go paddling in the sea
