Little Green Men

I got bored in class the other day and suddenly found myself inspired by St. Patricks days so I wrote this poem:

That time of year again
Noise in the street again
Out the window
Or over the hedge
Then what do you see
But really big rainbows
And little green men

The pot of gold is gone
And all that is left now
Is large men dressed in green
Prowling the streets
With their jugs of liquid gold

All the rainbows have gone
The streets are flooded
And try to remember the colours
From blue, to yellow, to red
But then what is to come next?
All that is visible is green

Shamrocks suddenly crowd the streets
Flee from the green streamers
Through doors and down alleyways
The little green man guides
But it is not to the end of the rainbow
But still to the pot of gold

City of Three (Wonders)

This is a poem I wrote, I think when I was about to leave Edinburgh last year, after I spent three of the best weeks I’ve ever had during a Creative Writing Course, all of these lovely ladies here know perfectly well about. 🙂

*****

A city so full of life
Three weeks of delight
Mornings and evenings
All spent in good company

A city breathing literature
Three arts of festivals
Days and nights
All spent with good humour

A city touched by history
Three great monuments
Castles and hills
All explored with splendid curiousity

A city come to life
Three times happiness
Friends and aquiantances
All left with a sad goodbye

A city about to vanish
Three more minutes
Farewell and goodbye
All the way home again

Goodbye

I look out the window

     Skies are flying by faster than time

Tears are streaming, down

     Cheeks that are gleaming, of

Days filled with new faces and

     Joy and laughter.

Many a days gone by

     Now it is time to say goodbye

I look out the window

     And wipe the tears of farewell.
