WELCOME

This is my blog (now there is a surprise!). I will be sticking in it poetry, prose, random musings, things that take my fancy and more than likely lots of pictures of cats. I hope you find something to amuse and/or interest you here.

 When I'm With You.

I see you turn and laugh at me,
My fears then melt and drip away.
How can my heart not have its say
When it is full of love and glee?

Sometimes I’m sure you can not see
The love I feel, that you will stray.
I see you turn and laugh at me
My fears then melt and drip away.

And this is how it seems to be,
My heart is strong, my mind falls prey
To fear and doubts that you will stay.
But all these worries turn and flee,
I see you turn and laugh at me,
My fears then melt and drip away.

  2. Hey Pen! Is this derived from that amazing triolet you wrote last week? Great stuff! I'm not a rondel master but I think the end stanza has 5 lines ending with the A refrain. I did my first this week too so not too sure!

  12. Not being a poet myself, just how you come up with these ideas and then turn them into pictures so wonderfully described is beyond me.Excellent.
