Living it Up

Making my usual rounds
of morning dailies, to my surprise
this headline grabbed my eyes:
"Queen of England in the red
bloody short on cash
overspending lavish,
If so, where's she hiding all her pounds."

below zero nights of snow flakes
become icicle delights in daylight

Short England poem by Lisa Barton| Details |

how it feels

Little girl, fallen angel,
Lie down here,
Open your eyes,
Your legs,
Drape them around me.
Think of England,
Think of how much it hurts.
Bite your lip,
Swallow
The Blood.
Does this feel better?
Do you like this?

THE GIANT LUMBERJACK

There was a very old giant lumberjack of England,

who was invited to dinner at a wood-house upland,

but the chimney was a wee bit low,

and the doorway came up to his toe,

he cut down the house and they dined on bare land.

boated fishermen in the breeze from the Spit of the largest reservoir in England's 

smallest county completed our beautiful Spring day in the Midlands.

Canada To Me?

What is Canada to me?
Silver Sun or Maple leaf Tree?
Bugle Boy with his bugle cracked?
Strong crowned men, or hear their legal flack?
Women whose poems we do read
With the words of Old England, oh yes indeed?
What is Canada to me?
Summer time fun and a Maple Tree Leaf!

Quahog

Quahog burrows deep in mud …
By bubbles it’s betrayed … 

“We’re gonna have a clam-bake!
Bring your waders and a spade!”




A quahog is a large and very tasty type of clam, native to the New England coastline.
The name will be familiar to all fans of "Family Guy" ...

Limerick: Once a Roundsman signed a round robin

Limerick : Once a Roundsman signed a round robin

Once a Roundsman signed a round robin
To keep his men from a certain inn
Men called to tell his wife :
At inn he danced to fife
So the wife played high fife with the men*.

•	Pronounced as in England : « min ».

Short England poem by farah chamma| Details |

Prolonging

Lingering memories, those
I yonder,
I yearn for the marvel,
As I wonder,
All emotions grasped, 
I am torn asunder,
Thoughts of mine, all squandered,
Taken by its oblivion,
 Its beauty I ponder,
Stolen away by its prolonging
Sensations,   
Plundered,

In England’s streets I wander…


Short England poem by charles hice| Details |

Left And Right

 Left And Right 
Left And Right 
 
Highway Walkway 
Right side is an English way on the left is European 
Left in England right in USA. 
 
In France is it the same as English men or Us the Usa? 
  
In Belgium is it same way? 
  
Germans are the best way. 
  
Flower trail my way. 



Short England poem by Debbie Guzzi| Details |

A Wrinkled Tale

Three pedal pushers, pushed past,
mom, daughter, grand
icons of fashions.
Forms formed by the dictates of passion.
Hair cropped, brows plucked,
rural New England’s answer to
Dolly Parton.
Scooped necked and corseted
varying little from teen-queen to matriarch;
only the wrinkles told the tale.


Short England poem by Andrea Dietrich| Details |

A Force for Good

A righteous man and force for good was England’s William Wilberforce. For those without a voice he stood, a righteous man and force for good! No other man of his time could have fought so well and stayed the course! A righteous man and force for good was England’s William Wilberforce.

                                                     Changed England's faith.

Chivalry

If I could travel back in time I would
Return to the great age of chivalry
To meet Sir Lancelot and Robin Hood
In Merry Old England is where I'd be
I would raise my sword for all that is good
And kiss the hand of my fair lady
To scale the castle wall with the moon above
Just to spend a night in the arms of my love


Short England poem by Peter Dorr| Details |

Wetlights


Overnight rain hangs wetlights on the twigs of the autumnal hedges, 

as the light blue sky is ploughed by diagonal yellow furrows to remind 

farmers to finish their ploughing in this 'Yellow Belly' county, the most  

               the most farm favoured in all England.  

the blue sky ploughed by diagonal


Short England poem by Rhonda Johnson-Saunders| Details |

Bloody Mary

King Henry VIII ‘s daughter, Bloody Mary This evil queen’s mission, England’s Protestants to bury Never at night did she wake After a day yelling, “Burn him at the stake!”
* I wanted to use "off with his head" but could find no historical evidence she ever used this phrase. Only in Alice in Wonderland!


Short England poem by Brian Strand| Details |

ashes to Ashes

A phoenix arose fro Leeds
Achieving wonderous cicketing deeds,
On a glorious August day-
Ten wicketsfell in jusy one day's play
The urn ,in England now will stay

Tribute -England won back the ashes yesterday from Australia.
Note:To English cricket lovers this is equivalent to winning the Super Bowl and the soccer 
Wprld cup.


Short England poem by Peter Dorr| Details |

Fen Blow 2



The soil sailed by the North Sea wind into road traffic all,

as oldies remember their parents, grand parents talk of 

being transferred to England's little Dust Belt of the Thirties;

while the fast foreign labour surprised by the gentle English 

weather getting annoyed with one and all, its just like home after all.  











Short England poem by Teddy Kimathi| Details |

Turtle and Elephant World

The Native American Indians believe that the world
was created on the back of a giant elephant,
that steps the back of a giant turtle;
by supernatural beings.

Today, the descendants of England
have brought with them their architecture and culture
to the Turtle and Elephant World,
making the Turtle's and Elephant's load heavier.


Short England poem by R Kumari| Details |

England’s Dream (2005)

An unsung hero of England’s dream
National lottery isn’t applicable to pick the team 
Fields of glory
Fields of dreams ands the same old stories
Defeat after defeat
 Losers go home
This hero carried on playing while hearing them moan 
Moan they do and eyes roll over
England’s dream is all over 


Football back in the days of Ian Wright


Short England poem by Anthony Dover| Details |

A mathematical problem

Future of infinte pain,
+something you don't want to do x
the difference in these loving eyes,
carry the once and future king of england,
The sum of this is a very rich man.
This years preoccupation is written on the leaves that have fallen on the path i walked all year.
As leaves from trees.
Transience is gold dust under your fingernails.

Short England poem by Tatyana Carney| Details |

Snow and Silence - For Ellie

Shine a candle in the shadows
break the glow stick green
Conquer those New England days
You know what I mean
Tree limbs tapping at the window
frost on rivulets grey
Open up the blinds and melt them
into words you've yet to say
Soak in bubbles brought to boiling
swirled in steam and sleep
Break the silence with emotion
I am yours to keep.


Short England poem by Anna T| Details |

New England Winter

I tap my foot restless...
The snow continues to cover. 
In a torrent- my torment.
Taking my sweet years with it. 

As I age and forget. 
With all that remains- I regret.

I retreat in my cave and curse the gray days. 

A thief in the night, I awake…to an empty chamber- my heart. 

I cannot take another New England winter. To face myself in the mirror.
