‘The boy stood on the burning deck’
‘Lonely goatherd, hills.’
‘Once more into the breach dear friends’
‘A host of golden daffodils’
If they can do it why can't I?
It’s not for want of trying.
My friends can do it, it’s not fair
It makes me feel like crying.
So let me have a practice -
find some words wot rhyme.
Let me sit and concentrate
Invest some useful time.
think think think think……right......
Bard, card, lard, yard, jarred?
Plop, hop, drop, cop, mop
Kite, white, fight, might, plight
Stop, crop, lop, bop, flop.
That didn’t help, at least I tried
I don’t know what to do.
But wait a minute, something stirred!
A feeling that’s quite new.
‘He gazed into her longing eyes
And saw inside her mind.
He gazed at her and realised
that he...he ....he.....erm.....’
