Charly: London and all that jazz!
This week has been full of family birthdays! My little niece turned three on Tuesday, while my other niece turns ten today. They’re so grown up, and I had lots of fun playing with their birthday pressies, maybe more so than they did.
At the weekend, my BFF and I went up to London to watch Wicked! Such an amazing musical. Despise my cold, that I’m sure I caught from the lady sat next to me during the show, I have been attempting to sing along to all my many musical soundtracks, to the delight of my family and colleges. This week I have also been doing my usual writing! So for you all, here is my latest poem to add to my ever -growing pile of them. I’m hoping that it will inspire you to get your pen and paper out.
Charly bee xx
Tie up the laces on your shoes
And I shall tie the sash on my dress
Together these knots will bind everlasting
And we shall entwine our fingers accordingly
With our eagerness, we go ever north
Following that star that is so poignant
Wrap that scarf around you tightly
And I shall button up my coat erratically
The night draws quickly and un-shameful
Your breath lingers warmly on my neck
And with this, we walk on further hastily
The winter comes close
I feel the bite as he surfaces
These dark and early nights bring me joy
So place your hat on snuggly
And I shall place on my gloves excitedly
So with this we come to the four corners
The place we started out from, all those years ago
Marching on with our radiated hearts
I glance once more at you
We soon shall arrive at our destination
The moons beams tell me we’re on track
So place your heart on my sleeve
And I shall put my faith in your hands.
