Creeping slick as silk
Crimson foxes scour the night
Like screaming banshees.

Mom and pups scatter
Like fluffy roaches fleeing

Made son Forest very mad

Quickly producing a rival 'Mars' bar!

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,
The Blood.
Does this feel better?
Do you like this?

A Knights Tale

Tension rises
Feel the heat beneath the visor
A swing, a duck, a roll to safety
The is not the place to be hasty

Can not faulter
For death awaits who is not wiser
A hit, a plunge, a source of pain
Who is the one that will remain

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.

The water, sandy shore, lush hills, swaying trees, the smart lakeside houses and 

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.

 William Wordsworth
England was the place of his birth
He got inspired and became quite thrilled
When he saw a host of golden Daffodils

He wrote several plays too
Like Macbeth, King Lear, And The Taming of the Shrew

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!

Short England poem by Frances King| Details | |


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*.

Short England poem by farah chamma| Details | |


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

In England’s streets I wander…

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.

Kyle the Child Vagrant

Eldest oak in the grove, let me scramble through your earthly bindings
Allow me to traverse your knotted limbs, until the top is conquered 
No other place is greater than here, so warm amongst these scraggly boughs 
I wish only that my roots were as critical as yours, that I had somewhere to belong.

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.

Short England poem by Vince Suzadail Jr.| Details | |


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 | |


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 Harika Diaz| Details | |

my own

I prefer to receive my own
Purchased by the clinking of keys and a 
Blister forming on the thumb.
I prefer to find my own
Among the twisted branches and bleeding berries.

The coat with the mended sleeve dangles by my head 
as we find the sleeping bears above us.
He laughs as his becomes a possum
And mine a mountain top.

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.

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.
