My favourite things: one more time with real emotion

Caring crusaders and daring debaters

Emmeline, Greta, Ruth

Your voices sound loud with the bold toll of truth.

Uncowed and defiant. You refused to give in.

Life-changing campaigning is a wonderful thing.


Marathon runners: hard-trained and focused 

With miles in your strides

And pain hardly noticed.

Everyday heroes with strength in your limbs

Your drive and passion are wonderful things.


Regard and recognition on faces in town.

Familiarity and acceptance. Being known.

Security, history. True belonging.

The safety of home is a wonderful thing.


Poems that speak of shared emotion

Words that echo lived sensation

My own soul reflected in great writing

The comfort this brings is a wonderful thing.


When black dog strikes

When regrets cringe

When my path seems long

I try to recapture these wonderful things

And borrow their strength to go on.
