Going to Leicester

A Yankee lover for Leicester
unsure pronounced it Likester
sorry the agent did smirk
none for likester you jerk
but plenty if she's in Lester.

What Does the Fox Say

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

Mom and pups scatter
Like fluffy roaches fleeing
When we peek outside.

Blub...

Paranoid

They say I am insane
Crazy
They wish to lock me up
Toss the keys in the river

I know I am being watched
They are all fools if they say not
I see the eyes watching me
Do not you?

English Countryside Carnage

English Countryside Carnage

There is a genteel place called Midsomer,
But living there can be a real bummer.
For the inhabitants wait in dread
That they be among the murdered dead.

Whasson, You

Words from Wiltshire
Hard to define all
You say Mildenhall 
And I say Minal
“Ere, whasson?” 
We say in Wiltshire
“Ere, areet then?” 
“Mine’s a 6Xy beer”
”Catch you laters...” 
(Sorry, when?)

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

Rutland Water

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.

Swapping

By twilight we shall reach Torchwood
to spy on an insane time lord
let's delete him
then send him
straight to Mt. Erebor
then knock out a lowly hobbit,
kidnap him
and toss him in the Tardis
Once he wakes up
we take a step back
to see what happens next!

Short England poem by Leslie Philibert| Details | |

ASBO

The beer cans are almost esoteric
Banging down the trash shaft

As boots slide over dog`s pavements;
Tunnels clatter with horseshoes

And piss, an estate with no state;
A simian face against a growler;

I`m sorry for the sorry, skins,
But my stomach turns with Angst.

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.

Ravelston Hall's Gardens at Night--from The Secret of Ravelston, a novel

The gardens’ magical beauty comes to life 
in the dark of night.  
The large treetops seem to float right up above you 
and merge with the open sky.  
The flowers seem forbidding in the dim light of the night,
but as you look at them for a while, 
they glow to you, 
and are more radiant than at daylight.

LOOK AROUND

LOOK AROUND

Look around at the Queen’s England. 
It’s such a magnificent country with a quaint air of happiness. 
There is a freedom here like nowhere else on earth. 
It’s part of being an English patriot, 
of being in love with an English girl, 
of shedding a tear when a Spitfire roars past.

Not Feeling Tracey's Badger

Went to the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy today.  Really inspiring.  However...(sorry, Tracey, you win some, you lose some)

 

I liked Tracey Emin's bed

Was partial to the tent thing, too

But what's with the badger?

Is it dead?

And isn't that owl

Too s**t for the loo?

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 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.

To Beckon's Call


            What say you ? Standing there. Take these ribbons from my hair.

            Take these ties that bind me in . No worries govner 'tis ain't no sin.

            Remove these stockings , oh so high . Place your hand upon my thigh.

            Lords and Dukes and Earls is all , brings once a lady, to beckon's call.

Queen Elizabeth


Queen of jeweled crown, she reigns dignified; 
Undying loyalty, tall prince at her side.
English lavender blooms, her majesty’s tale
Eclipses tragedy, a monarchy hailed. 
Never lost for prim smile, year’s traditions shown;

Elizabeth, with grace, ages on Windsor’s throne.

Siana of Cymru

From far away
Does she breathe
A life into this broken heart
For simply being a star above

Her soft spoken ways
Her voice so sweet
She has become
Heavens treat

I wish one day
To kiss this soul
Hand in hand
Walking through the knolls

Flowers surround this lovely tale
Of my dream, built on white wide sails
For oceans away, I must go
To kiss a lass, I cherish so

Queen Elizabeth I: a condensed sonnet

O most feared Belovéd,
how bloodthirsty you are!
Your might is exalted,
for you I'd go to war,
pillage and conquer. Men
worship you as do I.
All, Christian and pagan,
swear unto you fealty.
So, grant me, my Daughter,
this one wish. Knight me now
with blood and holy water
on my shoulder and brow;
     for you are England's Queen,
     and your kingdom's foreseen.

Short England poem by Al Parry| Details | |

Carnival

Grasp the anguish, of the dank do-

Gooder, bursting across

The local track.  Kids bored silly

Outside the school, sneer as

She slips past.  The brassy broad clings

In the wind to her hat,

As shoulder straps preclude her sack

From sinking, she is an-

chored by her leather bag, the last

Treasure she can hold fast.

Since the rain washed away the mirth

Of the carnival day.

Short England poem by Anna-Marie Docherty| Details | |

Great Britain

Government
Royal family, regal, royalties,
England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales are part of GB, Europe
Army, Air force, and Naval support
Treasures, tutoring, training

Buildings and gardens of significance
Rivers, rail and roads
Islands surrounded by sea
Territorial forces, tax tea and traffic
Archaeology, history unveiled and preserved
Industry
National pride, National Insurance, National Health Service
