Menolyrical; Words for Words' Sake.

The last of the current crop from the Little Black Book.  It was a 'duet' form poem - an attempt at demonstrating covering the same subject matter in two different patterns. A tad pretentious I suppose,  but fun to revisit. Thank you all for your forbearance as I have trawled through these!


  1. Most impressed by your youthful literary ambition!

  2. Hello, I love your spring poem. There is nothing as grand as nature!

  3. We love the little black book! It is quite a treasure and we love the penmanship!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  4. Crikey Aunty ..... keep trawling. Your treasures are a delight. Mum loved both of these and you did capture the same subject matter 'so differently'.

  5. Your black book is a sensory delight of words.

  6. you found wonderful words... I like the part with the cherry trees and the lovers... they belong together somehow :o)

  7. I knew you had a way with words. I do love your handwriting, though!
