Hello! and: Socks
I am not sure if I am supposed to be doing this, (posting something, that is)! I’m Sam (and a female- I often get mistaken for a man online).
I’m new to WordPress sites like this, and new to this one, and still finding my way around, so please forgive me if I make a right hash of this!
Thanks for having me
Just want to say too this is a fabulous site you have made here, great writing art and poetry (and probably lots more great stuff too!) on here, I am honoured to be in your company.
As it has just turned midnight and is now Valentine’s Day (in the UK) I thought I’d share with you a “bah humbug to Romance” poem I wrote recently.
This is a little recent addiction of mine, to write 3 line verses sticking to the formula of 5,7,5 syllables, it’s quite fun. Counting on your fingers never came in so handy!
(A Translation note: Slang for the good old quality shop Marks and Spencers=Marks and Sparks for anyone not from these shores)
Rummage in my drawer
Pull out socks long left behind
God these never wear
It’s been a long time
Since they saw your feet. I wear
Them quite a bit. Not
But because they are there – and
Marks and Sparks I’ll bet
For you wore out very fast
Had no quality
Not to mention spark
Although you did have good taste
‘Specially in socks.
