Wedding Day Mementos

Poetry is a wonderful gift as a memento of a special occasion.
A poem that is personal to the happy couple and with names and date that can be included.
There is also a space for a photo of the couple to complete this lovely gift.
If you would like to order one I would be happy to help.


Good Night

I`m so tired after such a day
racing around in cold white snow
so much fun sniffing about
defending you from the foe

snowballs whizzing past us
joy and laughter all around
back home now for our supper
then snoozing by the fire surround

a winters past time in the snow
dressed in brightly coloured ski suits
weaving precariously down the piste
trying to look good in goggles and boots !

Silent night

through the silence of the evening
salty tears running down my cheek
memories from all my yesteryears
turning in on me, making me weak

so much pain eating away at me
stripping me of all emotions
crushing the life out of my heart
submerging my soul in raging oceans

with a heaviness that saddens me
through muffled darkness of the night
for sleep evades my weary body
no way back to the bright light

let me slip into the silent night
relieving me of all my pain
as the stillness washes over me
for staying here will bring no gain!!

    Wintry Bite...

      Seeing my own breathe in the air
      on a bitterly cold winter morning
      heavy crunch of snow under foot
      as the sky dances with the dawning

      all bundled up in hat and scarf
      as I set off on my mission
      trudging through this windy day
      I head to my destination

      trees all bare after summer
      thin naked twigs that make no sound
      whistling winds pass by my ear
      and foot prints that mark the ground

      this coldness bites at my skin
      so reaching home, a strong desire
      then feeling the comfort of my home
      can`t wait to warm up by the fire

Master Penguin. 

This jolly little feathered friend
dressed up in black and white
with wings that won't let him fly
waddling through snow, quite a sight

Agile in these icy waters
seeking out his abundant food
as he dives amongst his group
like a playful kid in a happy mood

Huddled together through bad weather
protecting the next generation
snowy storms may rage about him
as he shows great dedication

This intrepid little penguin
smartly dressed in his fine attire
surviving in this snow bound landscape
with his great heart so full of fire!

Winter Fairy

As the winter Fairy stands
surveying her wintry horizon
snowflakes spin in the bitter breeze
for Jack Frost's dance has begun

a sparkle in her bright blue eyes
wrapped up in her warm red cape
through the grayness of the storm 
she watches over the landscape

as winds ruffle frozen branches
singing their soulful lullaby
her smile lights up this cold season
for winter fairy is here to stay
