Written for Lynn’s retirement after 21 years as a teacher Lynn has finally paddled to the shore. Stepping on the sand of the retirement tour. New adventures and grandkids to spoil, No more marking or teachers’ hard toil. But we must remember a few little things, Before she flies off, flapping those wings: She started … Continue reading PADDLING TO SHORE
I know you’re not supposed to know who I am, But I can’t hide my love, I just never can. St Valentine really gave me the bug, There’s nothing more lovely than me in your hug. Cupid’s arrow also pierced my heart, I was struck with love’s own special dart. When I first saw you … Continue reading A poem written for Joe on Saint Valentine’s Day for Debbie. (They have recently got engaged too)
Football may not have come home quite yet, We failed again to put the pen in the net. But Qatar is close, only next November to wait, The World Cup is coming, now that’s the update.

Sometimes proud of wearing that number, Sometimes anxious, victims in slumber. 5750 occasionally resented, Forcing her forward when no one … Continue reading This is a poem written for Sue, who has just retired from the police force after over 30 years.
I can’t believe that Milly’s settling down, We all know how she likes a night on the town. She’s played hard to get for so many years, Leaving lads in tatters and tears. Load of fellars always chasing behind, Sincerely hoping that love isn’t blind. ‘Love them and leave them,’ was always her motto, Bewitching … Continue reading A poem to celebrate Milly and Matt’s engagement requested by Milly’s best friend, Jackie.
A poem written for Jenny’s 18th requested by her mum, Sally. I can’t believe that Jenny’s all grown up, My baby girl now wearing makeup. At 13 she grew up and you know that it’s true, Clubbing she was (oh yes I blumming knew!) She was the apple in her doting dad’s eye, We lost … Continue reading 18th Birthday

Written for Elouise and her family for Roger this Father’s Day. Our dad is special, he always has been, Farmer through and through, there’s no in between.

All fans coming together for England! Following Leeds Is hard at its best, Everyone hates us, We’re the team they detest.
