(As a brief interlude, folks, from that Bayswater Bed-sit...)
Poem 48 of 230: THE PROMS (1997)

We walked through Kensington Gardens,
Then made a left for Albert Hall.
Promenaders were in their tens,
While others had found their stall,
As we took our pre-booked seats.
The seats were of restricted view -
Three-quarters of the orchestra.
But the music sure bettered par:
The beautiful sounds of Mozart;
The daring drama of Ravel.
And we liked it - me and a belle.

THE END

I lost my poetry
In that lift.
I'd put it in
Hoping to shift
My stuff, both boring and inane
Up to some high poetic plane!
I pressed the button, then jumped out,
Not sure just what i was about.
The lift, with all my dreams in store,
Went up and jammed
Between two floors.

Poem 206 of 230: MY DIET

Crackers, conserves, cucumbers,

Lemon barley,

Poem 115 of 230: SUNDAY CRICKET AND BERRIES - SUMMER 2000

From a bus - ninety-eight,
    Bury to Manchester -
I got off at the gate
    Of Hamilton Road Park,
Where in situ I ate
    Several blackberries
(The taste too good to wait)
    Before making my way
To a further park-gate,
    From where briefly I watched
How Stand's cricketers rate.
