Yup – still singing

by Jem Croucher

10 of 12 in ‘The Spring 21’ series from Jemverse


Wet roads glisten in sunshine

fresh from the rain

as I sit here gazing

from my window again

Very little here passing

lock-down in full swing

but there’s full colour highlight

born of the Spring

Still singing

by Jem Croucher

Wet roads glisten in sunshine
fresh from the rain
as I sit here gazing from
my high window again
There’s not much here passing
lockdown in full swing
but it highlights the colour
which comes from the Spring

Lifting II

by Jem Croucher

I’m thinking of a song I heard
one that brought a grin
for that is what I need right now
with the state I’m in
I’m trying hard, don’t get me wrong
and I know I’m not alone
as there are many others out there
who like me must stay at home
But it’s hard remaining positive
so I need a helping hand
provided by a favourite song
sung by a favourite band

I sing

by Jem Croucher

The sunshine comes against the blue
with birds up in the tree
encouraging this morning
as the Springtime here I see
Yes there is still a present chill
the crisp of winter clings
but in my heart the summer comes
so with the birds I sing

Voices ready to sing loud
proclaiming Christmas call

The Philharmonic orchestra
was wonderful to hear
five thousaand people joining in
with rousing festive cheer

And the mexican wave was something else
all adding to the thing
this unique celebration gave
with carols there to sing

Constant Singing

by Jem Croucher

Came back to the beach
but I didn’t stay long
for instead of the sun yesterday
Out to the East it looked a bit grim
and the clouds to the West were all grey

Having said that this place
be it raining or shine
has a magic that constantly sings
So I’ll always return and sit here a while
whatever the weather it brings

Middlesborough Singing

by Jem Croucher

A long trip up north
six hours on a train
met when I got there
with wetness and rain

So I thought of the sun
and the warmth that it brings
as that’s always enough
to make my heart sing

A song for the way

by Jem Croucher

5 of 5 in the Jemverse ’31’ series

We lost sight of our accordion player
as we wandered, singing our song
But he was just lagging behind us
as we slowly ambled along

So, reaching the base of escarpment
Fulking Village just ahead there to find
We turned and up there high above us
we found him in the sunshine

Paper Promises

by Angela Umphers Rueger

Upon my dresser sits a bowl
With slips of paper filled.
They bear a message to my soul,
By pen and ink there quilled.

in the sunshine I will sing
For it heralds Winter’s passing
and arrival of the Spring

The song of every ocean

by Jem Croucher


I know you’ve probably heard this
many times before
And the last thing that I want
is for it to be a bore

But the song I hear each morning
at the beginning of a day
Is something I must shout about
in each and every way

His Voice haunts my mind

Fills my Thoughts and the void

Spilling in Rhythmic Delirium that Entrances

Verbally dances

The last breath

by Jem Croucher


One tiny splash of summer colour clings
Alone and fragile there
Abandoned by warmth it sadly sings
With its last breath to share

Cusp of summer

Smooth the sand ‘neath greying skies
The breeze it softly sings
As o’er the sea, the setting sun
A gathering it brings

with warm embrace
and all because
sunshine is
my saving grace

In the corner of our dining room
Unassuming, standing there
Is an old brown, two-door cupboard
With a secret for to share

Dawn Chorus

I cannot capture sound in words
But I really wish I could
For what I’m hearing at this time
Is sounding pretty good
