England's Harmony

Unexpected Birth Of A Poem

This is so well written Jane.

Posted on Mon, 19 Feb 2024

This is so well written Jane. Having never spoken to people on line, I have no idea of what it's like. But I'm glad Vanessa gave those two men a piece of her mind. For once I actually came to appreciate Spencer...but I still detest too much...

HI Turlough, 

Posted on Thu, 15 Feb 2024

HI Turlough, 

your poem reminded me of the first job I had in Clare Street just off Baldwin Street Bristol in 1970. I was in the vicinity of a beer making factory and had to work with the smell of hops brewing all day. It had a distinct...

This is a gorgeous reminder

Posted on Fri, 16 Feb 2024

This is a gorgeous reminder of the beauty of nature in a world that seems so frightening.

Your descriptions were so poetic within the wood and left me with a sense of calm.

Thank you so much for sharing Di.

Jenny.

I just love to read a mysterious story Penny. Terms such as other worldly sums this one up perfectly. As you know this is a subject I enjoy.and accept as tangible even if it came from your brilliant imagination.

Entertaining read.

You are such a star Jacques.

Posted on Sun, 01 Aug 2010

You are such a star Jacques. I'd forgotten about this poem. Now I recall it was about a friend I've known since 1971 but not been in contact with since 2004, when I moved to Wiltshire, England. But we still continue to send cards to each other at...

Posted on Sat, 31 Jul 2010

I have happy memories of writing this poem Jacques. A child at heart there's always been a wonder to me when walking in woods or forests. Being able to imagine what exists beyond what I can see has led me into many adventures and other worlds......

Great poem Jane. You wouldn't believe how much I miss a bath. We had ours taken out  and a shower cubicle put in when I had my hip done. Now I just dream of one day soaking in a bath with some radox...I do love my showers though....

Hi Paul,

Hi Paul,

it's good to hear from you again and know that your son is safely home and has managed to get back on his feet.

My heart goes out to all those poor people caught up in this awful mess. It's so frightening.

You've...

I agree with you Jacques. War

Posted on Fri, 23 Mar 2012

I agree with you Jacques. War is such a waste of time and lives of men and women. It's hardly surprising that in the 60s, so many young people turned to the hippy way of Love and Peace, they had more sense. It's just a shame that the drugs moved...
