The manic poet




H E R E,   T H E R E....A N D..

     E V E R Y W H E R E!


They're "Here,There and Everywhere!"

Those Walking Ladies really care

Ach, ja, they plan another walk

Abandoned sofa.. Take left fork!


To Pikni Forest, feed a dog

Dear Enid does her "Sexy Jog"

All female is this "entourage"

They say that Sharon is in charge!


Poor doggie grateful, chicken snack

So lovingly they stroke his back

Now onwards: "Got some work to do!"

So happy that the sky is blue!


Meanwhile in Cleveleys, 'play a song

The Beatles, some say: "Can't go wrong!"

Then "Yesterday" and "Let It Be"

A "Blackbird" on a Cypress tree! (Not Lancashire?)


A Sharon walk, more up than down?

Do I detect an "Enid Frown"?

Jeanette, no bother, super fit....

Resplendent in her walking kit!


Dear Jane, she is the "Scrabble Queen"

And plays a game that's rather "mean"

She's humming "Sergeant Pepper" song

A Winding Road, that's rather long!


Back at the cars, a glass of wine

Its soothing properties... Divine!!

I raise my glass to "Walking Gals"

So glad that they are all our pals!  Amen.  11/04/2021 xxxx




"A U    R E V O I R,   P A R I S  !


Our coach is leaving, City far behind

Not "Gai Paris", we're feeling rather sad!

"Alors.. la mer!", a paradise we find

"Asnelles, Amour", of this we're really glad!

Tapisserie, Chere Bayeux, we're heading

Et Arromanches, a day we'll not forget!

Was this the tour with Barbara Reading?

Our students, speaking French, not fluent yet! (Presque??)

A highlight soon, our coach is heading west....

Mont Saint Michel, a jewel before our eyes

Let's walk across, this really was the best!

Fine Abbaie proud, beneath the bluest skies

Le soir, a "pantomime", to please our girls

"Quels jours heureux!": Miss "Daftnie", with her curls!! 08/04/2021 xx


E N V O Y A G E !

S C H O O L   T R A V E L


Our coach is waiting, we are Dover bound

It's early morning, many students smile

We all have Euros, 'no need English pound

Elaine, Maria, Linda chat a-while!

Excitement grows, we have our port in view

The ferry's perfect, Channel breeze to please

Calais before us, problems now are few

A glass of red, bread and Camembert cheese.

O'ernight in La Defense, La Tour we see  (Eiffel)

A Metro ride, la Seine, fine bouquinistes

Proud Notre Dame, a stroll, we're feeling free

Do interviews, we keep our girls "en piste"!

Our coach sets off, we've Normandie in mind

Asnelles before us, Channel view we find.. 06/04/2021 xxx


More to come! xx





Happy Birthday, Blackpool calling

Weather here is so appalling

Trudging through the slushy snow

Jeanette's Pegeia, place to go?


Queensbury is dark and snowing

Really smart, to Pafos going?

Walking or the Black Dyke Mills?

Kathikas brings far more thrills?


P'raps you want a brass band playing?

I can see you head is swaying

Memories come flooding back

All that snow, there was no lack!


Fitos for a Birthday "Dinner"?

Fish and chips for all a Winner!

Sharon's bringing local wine

Friends together so divine!


'Wonder what Dear Enid's doing?

Birthday Daughter she's pursuing!  (Very slowly!)

And we've got a Birthday Dance!

Soon for J' a new romance?


Wonder if you're "donkey-tracking"?

All those hills are really cracking!

At the top a thrilling view

'Must confess: problems are few!



Lots of love from Cleveleys sending

Friendship, clear, is never-ending

Missing all those Cyprus walks

And the chuckles, happy talks!


"Happy Birthday", Jeanette toasting

Cyprus sun, we bet she's roasting?

Raise a glass to Pegeia Queen

Famous on the walking scene!   Yiamas: 13/02/2021 xxxx
