A poem what my old fellta writ...

He is a bit of a poet but a lazy one ... he wrote this for me one day when I came back from berry picking ... and it true hedgewitch style complete with twigs in my hair ... :lol:

Thought I would share, here.

Blackberries.

Blackberries,
Natures sweet bounty.
Searched for by eager eyes
`neath warm autumnal skies.
Eaten fresh with custard,
Cream, in warm light crusted pies.
This gift from Mother Earth
However, its harvest looks like fun
But you may disagree
When a bramble scores your bum.
And how the hawthorn soldiers` spears,
Prick juice stained
Embattled hands,
Now swollen, red and sore
Stung by a nettle,
The one you never saw.
Perhaps free food,
You may reflect,
In monetary terms,
Would be better left
To insects, birds and worms.

GAZZ 2oo5.

Yea - as in
"I wandered lonely as a cloud
O'er hills and grassy banks
I stepped upon a mans bare bum
And heard a a womans voice say thanks!" :lol:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
