May the fourth be with you II

by Jem Croucher
Seven years of Star Wars days
we've had this little chap
the dog of many, many names
so let's give him a clap
Obi Wan Kinobi is 
his proper name of course
hence 'May the fourth be with you'
as he is strong with 'the force'
But he has many others
to numerous to repeat
as he is a very special friend
who makes our lives complete

Built a Falcon

by Jem Croucher
I built a Millennium Falcon
something I have longed to do
sixteen hundred pieces of Lego
from an intricate guide someone drew
It took me several long hours
but the resulting model of joy
is a beauty to simply behold and admire
by the man who's still really a boy

Youth rekindled

by Jem Croucher
Something I have longed for 
since nineteen seventy-seven
arrived on Christmas morning
with a little slice of heaven

My own Millennium Falcon
and an AT-AT for good measure
which after careful building
I can keep and always treasure

So May the Fourth
be with you here
with Obi-Wan
to bring you cheer

42 years and the Force

by Jem Croucher

In the heat of the summer
for a special treat
as we’d both left school for good
A good friend of mine and I
thought that a film
would fit the bill fine as it should

Something called ‘Star Wars’
was all of the rave
so both of us ventured to Brighton
Queued up at the Odeon
for a good seat
unprepared for what would enlighten

A dog, the ‘force’ and a smile

by Jem Croucher

20160703_105420

n a patch of yellow flowers
he sat and looked at me
panting in the sunshine
and acting playfully
He was quite content to sit there
long enough to take a snap
before running off and playing
for he’s a boisterous little chap

Obi’s Ears

by Jem Croucher

 

We have a dog called Obi
came to us on fourth of May
He really is a lovely chap
and loves to have a play
He has ridiculous ears
they’re his redeeming feature
Even though they’re quite enormous
for such a little creature.
