I'm In Love With Keeley Donovan

entry picture

I’m in love with Keeley Donovan,

weathergirl extraordinaire.

I love her figure-hugging dresses,

cheeky smile and silky hair.

I love the way she can’t stand still,

rocks back and forth, sways side to side.

I love the fact she’s just a very

tiny little bit cross-eyed.


I’m in love with Keeley Donovan.

I hate it when Paul Hudson’s on.

I’ve sat through half a boring hour

of garden gnomes and knit-a-thons,

then he shows up and my heart sinks.

All I want is lovely Keeley.

I switch him off, I couldn’t give

a toss about the forecast really.


I’m just in love with Keeley Donovan.

She’s the sun that warms my heart.

She’s the storm within my soul,

the bolt of lightning through the dark,

but Keeley - I don’t think that you

and I can ever be together,

if you don’t stop banging on

and on about the bloody weather.

Yes we’ve all fallen in love with a weather girl! Mine was a young Ulrika Johnnson back in the day.

Such a fabulously conversational poem, deceptive in it's natural simplicity, Joe. I loved it! ?

I've posted this before, but I'm posting it again because Keeley got married yesterday. Our love was never meant to be ?
