The Widecombe Fair Chestnut Mare
RDS said:

Thanks ASJ it canters along nicely this pony tail and evokes memories of Appleby and watching stables run out on Southport beach.
You very much capture the tensions of bidding!

beautifully constructed,
as ever I am left in awe at Poetry\'s endless wonder, to think such a subject can yield the most emotive of Poetic of content,
what an immersive and vivid write
\'The gavel falls ~ slam!
How gladsome I am,
As she sleeps in my stable tonight.\'

You had to travel for that one - didn\'t you? Needed horse had to go?
I tripped over at the first fence - the Widecombe Fair: but once I realised (after a quick recce) that it wasn\'t an Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all in terms of number of lines, I settled down and thoroughly enjoyed the short trip - the story telling, form pace and suspense.
Good stuff.

Regards Dave

A Day Out in London Town
Goldfinch60 said:

Super write Alan, I was brought up in Rochester, Kent and in part of the Medway Towns there is an area called Luton where back in the day the Eastenders used to come down and stay there while picking hops, some of them ended up living there so there and a cockney accent was established. I have been living in the West Midlands for 21 years now and people can sometimes hear a cockney twang when I speak.

A Day Out in London Town
Doggerel Dave said:

Ah but you have the West Yorkshire Moors around you and under your feet, Alan. All that history and environment. Please don\'t knock it. The only change from brick, asphalt and the small local park I experienced as a kid was a yearly fortnight\'s holiday to Sandown Isle of Wight.
At my previous post I forgot the \' good/excellent write\' accolade current here. Sorry about that - well deserved.
Take it easy, Dave

A Day Out in London Town
Doggerel Dave said:

\"Spose I\'m obligated to add my three hapeth: Love the place (as it was in the \'40\'s and again in the \' 60\'s and\'70\'s. My roots. Changed a lot since - over development, Canary Wharf, big finance etc. What doesn\'t seem to have changed, when It\'s there is the drizzle and the cold. Reason enough to beat a retreat to good old Sydney Town...

Anyway , Mind \'ow yer \'go ( if it\'s still said like that and Estuarine hasn\'t clobbered that as well...

Genevieve Is A Summer\'s Day
Fay Slimm. said:

You present sweet Genevieve with poetic exuberance as her presence you liken to so many pleasures and with a lovely first line \"She is the sunlit start of day\" - - an eloquent tribute dear Alan.

orchidee said:

Oh, I gotta have a lay down now. Not just cos of the brilliance of the wording, but the colour of this poem too. I feel a bit sick and bedazzled! I had to read it with me sun-glasses on. heehee. (Do shut up, Orchi. lol). Well, I put multi-coloured roses on today\'s poem, so I can\'t complain.

The Bane Of The Cancered Soul
dusk arising said:

Poignant, I saw this in my brother who seemed to have resigned himself to death.
Last year I had cancer treatments and saw many fellow sufferers. I note that those accompanying the patients were mostly the ones who were upset emotionally. Patients being strongly encouraged to be positive which is now clinically proven to aid recovery where recovery is possible.

A difficult thing to write about when a loved one or friend is taken by cancer. I too wrote for my brother today on his parting about 5 years ago, please have a peep at \"go then\"

It is so sad Alan when you see people passing, I saw this in my wife with her dementia and was with her on her passing which strangely seemed to give a release to both of us.

Fay Slimm. said:

Your compilation of differing outdoor conditions well shows the need to thank Nature for bountiful gifts - - a wise way to see life in our changing weather is shown in your title with which I agree - -many thanks Alan for a finely rhymed read,

Beyond The Rain
orchidee said:

Oh no, now you started me singing \'Where have all the flowers gone?\' and me getting all sentimental (and smoochy?) lol.
I supose they are still there, all these things and people, but we may not have seen them so much these days, with lockdown, etc. But I see the sense in which you write this poem.

Wonderful words Alan. Maybe one day homo sapiens will realise that they are destroying the earth and do something about it instead of talking about it.
