‘Marvellous’ Marlay Park

My Garden of Eden, in the south of town

A must for walkers, a joy all year round

With swans on the lake

Squirrels on the take

And bubbling water, such a pleasant sound

Running on…

Marlay Park is in Rathfarnham, South Dublin

Look at that Caveman go (Is there life in bars?)

I know a man, who lived in a cave

A great place, held many a rave

The craic was mighty

No sign of a nightie

Locked in there, like a papal enclave

————————————————

The music was loud, the place was rocking

Pissed-off neighbours, got fed up knocking

‘Play that again, mate

Hey, it’s never too late

Oh my Lord, who owns that stocking?’

———————————————

This is a poem, I just had to write

About the one and only, trog-lo-dyte

With it cranked to eleven

‘YEAH, we’re in heaven’

He spun them discs, ‘til it was light!

Same Again!

For A Friend

You’re strong and true, like a well-made peg

With all the fragrance, of the finest nutmeg

My present is small

Don’t let if fall

You deserve it and more, for being a good egg

A Good Egg!

The Happy Couple

On this Good Friday, there’s been much kerfuffle

Jocy and Steve smiling, as they become a couple

I raise a cheer

For you, my dear

Open a bottle, let’s see a sparkling bubble

Congratulations!

Rainbow

It’s the magical sign, after all the rain

The perfect curve, chromatic champagne

It brings a smile

For a little while

Nature’s beauty, and colourful vervain

Rainbow rising

Having a Laugh

Our burst of laughter, is long and loud

Heads are turning, in the nearby crowd

We wipe away tears

Forgetting our fears

Times are tough, but we won’t be cowed

Turning Heads

A Walk in the Woods – 2

A walk in the woods, is something I treasure

For body and soul, my go-to pleasure

Pretty birdsong does call

Streams tumble and fall

Feeling better now, peace beyond measure

Into the woods

Streams tumble and fall

Feeling better now, peace beyond measure

Into the woods…

Seashell on the Seashore

Seashell, seashell on the seashore

Just the one, I was looking for

The sand I clear

Now I can hear

The tumbling sea, and endless roar

Seashell on the Seashore

The White Lady

She stands steadfast, a classic trope

Shining snow white, a beacon of hope

Against sea and storm

As gusts ‘round her swarm

Facing whatever, she’ll always cope

Leading Lady
