A Holiday Like Home

Mums had enough of all the rain
She’s booked a holiday
Somewhere nice and warm and dry
Thats sunny every day

She packed our bags and cases
Already for the off
Passports and the suncream
With other holiday stuff

Then to the travel agent for our money she did go
And picked up all the tickets
My mum did not go slow
Now the taxi to the airport we were almost there

There were a lot of people doing just the same
So it was just as well they had a really big big plane
Then when we were sitting down I heard a revving noise
Dad said we were climbing up into the sky

The flight was quite a long one so it seemed to me
When I looked out the window all that I could see
Was lots and lots of water as blue as blue can be
Untill the clouds like cotton wool covered up the sea

But when we arrived there
Much to mums surprise
The place was deep in snow drifts
She couldn’t believe her eyes

We spent the next two weeks there
And much to our surprise
We had the bestest holiday
The best time of our lives

Mum’s booked us in for three weeks next year.

Oh Oh The Rain

weather file-6

Oh oh the rain is here again I ache when it’s around
Nights spent listening to its gentle fall
Or hammering pounding on roof as if from Thor
Watering plants who drink their fill
Puddles left where you walk making for new paths
Oh oh the rain.

In valleys mist shrouds all
Landscape looks like a foreign country
Scenes change as clouds drift
Rivers swell and swiftly flow past field and village
Cliffs become unstable landslides occur
Oh oh the rain

In a land where the sun always shines
Rain is welcomed a gentle cooling relief from the heat
But it continues reservoirs once empty fill
Dry rivers slowly start to fill
The dams are full some overspill
Oh oh the rain

But look around at what you see
Trees in fruit or flower be
Fields of flowers colours spread
The bees their yellow pollen bags full
As home to make their honey flew
Oh oh the rain

No ark is needed here today
Toads and frogs come out to play
Olives trees turning cream as of their oil we dream
The almond trees are bearing nuts
Rain at night sun by day this is just the perfect way
For rain oh rain to come our way

In The Olive Garden

DSCF0720 (640x480)

Sitting in the morning sun
After rain is so much fun
But still there is much to be done
In the Olive Garden

The weeds are high after the rain
Wild flowers in swathes of colour maintain
The feeling of the wild again
In the Olive Garden

Strawberries fruiting in their patch
White flowers red fruit oh what a match
Their green leaves spreading all around
In the Olive Garden

Wild grape hyacinths with heads of blue
Their subtle perfume of memories make
Of walks beside ponds and lakes
In the Olive Garden

Iris heads peep out from leaves of green
Like prema donnas they wait to be seen
Beneath the tree that is their home
In the Olive Garden

Bees around the freesias play
Buzzing to and fro all day
Whilst freesia perfume drifts with the breeze
In the Olive Garden

I’ve weeded this I’ve weeded that
I’ve worked all day and that is that
I’ll sip my tea and relax here
In the Olive Garden

Oh dear oh dear I spoke too soon
It’s been raining all afternoon
There’ll be more weeds more work to do
In the Olive Garden

Happy New Year

Well Christmas is over the sales have begun

Now come the rush to the shops oh what fun

Next it is New year and bubbly all round

But the next day we are back on the ground

—————————————-

We all start the year with new resolutions

But what we do next is plan our vacations

To somewhere that’s nice and sunny and hot

Not raining all day or pouring a lot

—————————————

We work out how much we have to spend

Then do sums again just incase we were wrong

And just when we think it’s all sorted out

Up pops the Easter Bunny Ohh goody we shout

—————————————

Chocky oh chocky we eat by the egg

Before we realise it the inches have spread

Now down to the gym for a workout we go

Got to get fit for the holidays you know

—————————————-

The holidays are looming and then they are gone

The autumn approaches with harvest and fun

Now we have fall with fireworks then winter has come

All of a sudden its CHRISTMAS again  now we start all over again

——————————————

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE

Nature’s Delight

I wake to the sun shining through the tree
It’s dappled light gladdens me
A new day awakening I see
I’m glad these sights are greeting me.

The sun smiles down so bright and hot
As in to the shade I gently flop
A breeze is blowing over me
Relaxing here beneath my tree.

Late afternoon shade deepens now
The air is cooler yet somehow
Large clouds gather overhead
Some rain oh yes please these words are said.

As evening rolls on into night
Distant rumblings heard that’s right
A thunderstorm is on it’s way
A perfect end to a very hot day.

The lightening flashes whilst thunder blasts
Rain falling through the night at last
Dawn brings a feeling earth refreshed
I smell watered earth so clean and fresh.

I hear birds singing in the trees
Drinking from the still wet leaves
Plants once crying out for moisture
Now stand tall looking stronger.

Looking across the forest scene
Seeing fir trees strong and green
All this is mine this wild fresh view
A happier man I never knew.
