I’ve had an amazing time!
I even learned to rhyme a sonnet here and there;
to sup soup in the sun, sat in a garden chair;
bring kids to the zoo with an elephant in tow;
light a fire with words (in my gifted way, don’t you know);
I was watered, fed and minded in the most delightful way
by some people who, each one of whom, had loads and loads to say
about history and and memory and stag-nighters and the like,
One even, in the morning, round a lake did have a hike.
Others lay and gobbled ‘Irish’ from the comfort of the bed.
(The sour ‘ould wan’ was given a plate of prunes instead!)
Then we listened to the radio to some outrageous chap
who claimed that he liked rivers (full of water, like a tap).
We appreciated grandeur and sat in a gracious room
until refreshments were delivered. Then to the cars Voom Voom!
