An Englishman’s Prayer


Today I am sharing with you one of my most favourite poems: Lord, when I die, please let it be in Spring, 🌷 Let me see the swallows and hear a robin sing; 🐦 Help me to my window to see a butterfly 🦋 And watch the dreamy spiral of a lark up in theContinue reading “An Englishman’s Prayer”

Ode—Autumn Thomas Hood (1799–1845)


I I SAW old Autumn in the misty morn Stand shadowless, like silence, listening To silence, for no lonely bird would sing Into his hollow ear from woods forlorn, Nor lowly hedge nor solitary thorn;—         5 Shaking his languid locks all dewy bright With tangled gossamer that fell by night, Pearling his coronet of goldenContinue reading “Ode—Autumn Thomas Hood (1799–1845)”

Blush of Spring by Dawn Crabb (my grandmother)      Faint light of day creeps over the hill Pale moon hides and all is still Bending blackboys bristle there Green spears flung to the scented air Sea of daisies sweeping high Rainbow riot from the sky Frogs are silent, birds on the wing Bushland is calling,Continue reading “Blush of Spring poem”
