Michael Edwards





All men observe this short lament:

For peace and calm avoid dissent

Say ‘yes my dear’ do not torment

There is no way to circumvent

the power of petticoat government.

        Ah thanks A&B - at my sons tonight - my daughter and family coming tomorrow then to Chipping Norton to meet up with other members of the family - going to be a bit hectic but looking forward to it all. Think A large person carrying drone might be the answer. Have a good one both of you.

            I love, love, love the painting!

            Your poem says it exactly how it goes during this busy time of the year!
            Being a woman, Iโ€™m busy this Christmas Eve and will be busy on Christmas Day...cooking some traditional Italian meals!
            I would like to wish you and your family a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season!
