Winters Last Hurrah – A comic poem.


I switch on the Television

To see what the forecast has in store.

There’s another blasted hurricane,

Headed straight towards the shore!

Well, it’s better than that blizzard

That hit all of us last week,

I feel at the moment were all in

Some long unlucky streak.

It started cold and icy

And I thought that’s a bad as it would get,

But now the weather’s decided

To Combine both cold and wet.

The weather seems determined

To punish humankind,

I know we deserve it, but

I hope that we will find,

That this is winters last hurrah

It’s one full and final fling,

And in a week, or two or three,

There’ll come a marvellous, joyous, Spring.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. Hey,

    I’m working on my debut poetry book and preparing a mailing list. Would you like me to add your e-mail address please? If so, can you share it with me?

    I don’t plan to do it like hard core promotion, I will be e-mailing you privately not through any software. 

    I will just inform you when it’s available and when there is some huge fluctuation in price (sale etc.), as on WordPress reader, posts get lost in stampede.

    I won’t be mailing you more than 4 to 5 times a year, and that’s max. Promise!

    And if you want it to share it privately you can do that through contact form on my blog.

    Thank you 🙂
