I was talking to someone who found me on Google and wondered why all my readers on wordpress come from countries other than the UK. Maybe it’s because I don’t use the right tags? I’m still learning how to put things on line. I tried to find a picture of a mouse to go with the last post but once I had it I couldn’t see how to get it onto this blog.( It’s on twitter #jacyround)
That poem was in Sea Scribes’ Christmas anthology and, as I am not writing a novel at present I thought I might put some more verses on from our Worthing anthology until I realised how long they were.There’s only one that won’t take up too many lines:
The day of the big parade and the Council’s plans were laid
They closed the roads and the signs all showed where the procession stayed.
But they stood there in the rain as it poured from sky to drain
And, in the wet, the dancers fret “We dressed up all in vain.”
While the rain came sheeting down, floats trundled through the town
And the puddles grew as the people knew it was causing the day to drown.
But the Samba band played on as they marched to a cheery song
And the lorries drove while the brollies hove into view, along the prom.
We have had our summer fun, when it’s Birdman day they come,
In the fair they play, but this August day we really missed the sun!
( Worthing took over from Bognor to hold the Birdman event while their pier was out of order)
