Perhaps this shows where your heart lies and where you will find the deepest love? Are you going to do all the Wainwrights? Beside that, you have penned a nice little number here, good spiritual feel. Do you need a comma after "shines" in line 11?

I was listening to a 50s compilation recently and it struck me just how many songs had a girl called Sue or Susie in them. It was obviously extremely popular back then - or maybe it's because so many words rhyme with it - like glue, chew, you, who, too, to, two,loo, flew, brew, shoe, new, drew, blue, atishoo - oh, and stew of course.

Enjoyed your rendition, especially the twiddly vocal bits :)

Hello Anthony,
Yes, I too have been in the dark about women's parts for a lifetime. Our Gert enters the bedroom fully clothed, the light goes off and miraculously she seems to have changed into an impenetrable body stocking when she gets in bed.
My knowledge of ladies underclothes therefore comes from hours spent in Primark fondling bras and panties.

Although the distinction is a fine one I have replaced 'import' with 'impart'.

Jan, toosand tak. Not sure of spelling! Glad to see your work here. There is a long tradition of merchant seamen's poetry in English, some anthologised by Ronald Hope who once ran the College of the Sea/The Seafarer's Education Service. http://www.ebay.com/ctg/Voices-Sea-Poems-Merchant-Seamen-Ronald-Hope-1977-Book-/4600802

A tribute so rooted in admiration and affection that the Man himself would surely find himself blinking heavenwards.
He created his own universe here on Earth for
the rest of us to share and enjoy and that legacy will live on.

Stimulating. It reminds me that you don't have
to be in a church to revel in the glory of
creation or to feel a part of it.
A minor quibble - should "import" be read as "impart" (communicate)?

It seems to me that you have to know war to want to know how to avoid it.
The interesting aspect of martial matters often
lies in who is standing behind urging the warriors on.

There is also a joke I am reminded of via your choice of illustration John:

A wman was concerned and frustrated by her husband's lack of interest in the bedroom department. She visited her GP, who advised her to make sure that when her husband returned from work she should make sure that he was instantly aroused and reminded of her needs and availability.
Before her husband was due to return home that night she stripped naked, and as he was about to put his key in the door she did a handstand against the door jamb, legs akimbo (the sight that greeted him being that in your picture.)
On opening the door he exclaimed "Blimey Vera! Comb your hair and put your teeth in, you look a right c**t!"

Apologies to all those of a sensitive disposition . . .
