Hope you're well :-p

JC - you may recall commenting on my post "Fallen Angel" to the effect that you were waiting on the tune.
I have to tell you that I woke up early (too b....y early) yesterday morning with a tune
running through my mind which I somehow knew
would fit. The downside was getting out of my
warm bed to sing a version of the two into my
tape recorder...knowing that if I stayed abed,
I would fall asleep and forget it next time I
woke up. The price we creatives pay for our
efforts!!! Anyway, I am arranging for it to
be recorded by my usual excellent source and
hope to post the completed product on WOL in

It was an enjoyable evening as usual, but why was there no tribute to former TSE Prize recipient, Seamus Heaney? The evening should have begun with one of the PBS's recordings of SH reading.

Yes; it was an extraordinary evening. Quite something when nothing but poetry fills the Festival Hall.
As I'm pretty sure McMillan said: who knows, next year, we might even be on TV!

Glad you enjoyed. Not entirely autobiographical as you will have guessed!

Many thanks for your comment on 'Before You'. I see you are no stranger to love poems yourself :)
I also note that I last commented on one of your pieces back in 2011! The Library one. Was excellent.

My husband has a "Bucket List" poem. But his is very serious. He was told that he had a serious blood disorder. Turned out to be nothing but scared the He-- out of us for a while.

Very true, Larisa

Nice one Jeff. With some honourable exceptions, the wealthy have increasingly been characterised by a predatory attitude towards the rest of society. The way that sections of the media blaze the odd benefit cheat across their pages, and hypocritically keep very quiet about the much larger problem of tax avoidance is sickening.

The way that Western leaders regularly line up with an oppressive regime which continues with multiple illegalities is extraordinary. Sharon was one of the worst, with much blood on his hands.

A little explosive device...it's how it came out
Fri 10th Jan 2014 20:53
It's the same the whole world over
Ain't it all a bloody shame
It's the rich that gets the pleasure
And the poor that gets the blame.
Never a truer word spoken, Jeff. Angry enough for sure, but forceful? A rhyming quatrain keeps us close to song, from which poetry should never stray too far. Brecht had Kurt Weill to set his work to music...yet few barriers were broken down. It least not the ones Brecht had in mind. But in deep every system lie the seeds of its own destruction. We may have to wait some time for the young to heed your call...

Tightly wrought and heartfelt.
I assume this is aimed at governments in total
as the basic problems still seem to evade their
ability to put them right.
A global world and the ability of big business
to up stakes and move when meeting taxation
beyond their comfort zone hardly helps.
Emerging nations lie in wait with eager eyes on their own chances...and this must affect
political decisions accordingly.

Happy new year, Laura, chuck, and glad you liked Surbiton Lagoon. To tell the truth, I didn't go there much, because at that time I couldn't really swim. But I could always hear them all enjoying themselves, in the distance.

No steam trains going past Surbiton Lagoon, John, more's the pity, thought they weren't far away, of course. A whistle in the distance.

Aww, what a lovely poem. I can almost see her :) Glad you got that date :D

Lovely poem Harry. Captures that moment of being overthrown by a constellation of things -music, the light, her beauty.... and she was a doctor? Good catch!

I know John, I have to need somethin` goin` for me.
I took her to see Macbeth, and she insisted on
pointing out that McDuff`s blood was the wrong colour...She was, though, lovely...and very, very Irish. I couldn`t believe my luck.
(That one on my profile was a goodbye one for her)
