Where am I:dunno:

I'm sure this is going somewhere, hopefully we'll know where it is when we get there, can we have elves instead of elvies I know he's the king of rock'n'roll but it unnerves me a bit:yes:

A new sunrise dries weeping leaves while songbirds sing sweet melodies

The willow tree was dancing............................ ever so gently in the breeze

{spoken} While elvies and fairies played below

Dew Drops adorned her branches Like diamonds glowing bright

that appeared to me..............................In the twilight of the night

{spoken} prism-like reflections lit the show

I thought they were just stories read from books on grandma's knee

And I watched them chase their shadows......... as they began to flee

{spoken} and I knew it was time for me to go

To take flight and travel to distant lands, hotter climes with shifting sands

We move on as time decrees............................youth must pass by

{spoken} No more love trysts 'neath willow trees

Give me a break I'm an Artist, I'm very emotional:crying2:

Give me a break I'm an Artist, I'm very emotional

I write off the cuff in a way that some call irrational

I like this one:yes:

I'm an Artist (I think)

Give me a break I'm an Artist, I'm very emotional

I write off the cuff in a way that some call irrational

I smoke herbal Cigarettes, they're purely medicinal

I love lots of people but it's always conditional

When I hang out with friends I sound quite reactionary

But I'm just quoting words from the New Oxford Dictionary

I paint new age art and do amateur dramatics

On weekends I protest with left wing fanatics

I've added a bit and a chorus, whos turn is it:winkthumb:

On weekends I protest with left wing fanatics

Chorus

Yes I am an Artist

At least I think I am

I've met the Dalai Lama

Done Origami in Japan

My mind is so enlightened

I can write and I can Paint

I'm more than just an Artist

I could be a Patron Saint

Chris, you've excelled

And I'm feeling compelled

In fact I'm propelled

To compile and then meld

Praise as vast as the veld -

I'm not sure if that's spelled right

Or if its confusing

But I find that your musing

Is very amusing

But if you're consorting

With left wingers, that's sporting

But could get you into a fight. :yes:

Thanking you Carol

Glad you could catch me

I fear though this time

You matched me in verse

So I've just written this

With no time to rehearse

I quite like like that song

And think it's alright

But I'd much rather love

Than get into a fight

You speak much that is wise

But you cannot disguise

That for one of your size-

(6stone 9 with great thighs)

In the great sport of boxing

You need to keep foxing.

If you want a reprieve

You must dodge and then weave

And not stumble or freeze

In a fight to achieve

That golden first prize

Instead of black eyes:yes:

No fear, we're still here

Just took a short sojourn,

Working on some other stuff

Had some guitar to learn

Still sounded a bit rough I feared

So tried to put it right

And my Daughter had her baby

So We,ve been up all night

A little baby girl my friend

Weighing six pounds four

She's beautiful and sweet

We couldn't love her more

My daughter is quite tired

Though both are doing fine

Her partner's got the night shift

So the punishment

Fits the crime

Thanks Kenny suddenly I feel a little older but at the same time very Proud of my Daughter she delivered without any pain relief she's a tough girl. My GrandDaughter's called Lily Mai

Hi there you guys

Well, what a surprise

I thought you were busy

Composing your ditty

When all of the time

There were moments sublime

The daughter of Chris

(One talented Miss)

Was doing her bit

While the rest of us sit

Around playing guitar

And singing tra la

And never suspecting

She was even expecting!

Now your daughter I fancy

Has matched our dear Clancy

With a beautiful girl

For her grand-dad to twirl

With his muse standing by

For a sweet lullaby

Of promises to keep

That will send her to sleep

When he's not being daft

And making her laugh.

Now I have to report

That I'm four lines too short

In my effort to match

My previous snatch

Of verse, but much worse

I've now done the reverse

This verse has too many

But its a dime to a penny

It still will be read

So I'm off to bed.

Congrats, gramps! :claping:

My Sister in law doesn't have any Children but I think she gets a lot of pleasure from the Children in the Family, she's a Midwife and she delivered Lily Mai I think that made her very happy, the downside for me at the moment is that we decided to keep my Daughter close by for a few weeks as she's quite young and she needs a bit of time to adapt, due to this I have kindly vacated my room for her and am reduced to sleeping on a sofa bed in the living room, I think I'm going to have to get a bigger house:yes: Thanks for your kind thoughts Kenny, I'll take some pics and post them today, I'll have to post you a Cigar:winkthumb:

All the Best

Chris

Chris,

Congrats on the granddaughter, I am sure that she is beautiful. The old expression "If I had know that grandchildren were this much fun, I would have had them first" is all to true. They are a joy and I wish you and yours much love and happiness.

Thankyou Carol

I was going to write a short reply

But thought it better in verse

They're both doing fine

My Daughters a real tough guy

Her Fathers quite tired

From all the night duty

But he will recover

And Lily's a beauty

Hope you're in good form Carol thanks for your Kind Words, and have a nice sleep. The thread breathes again:winkthumb:

Good form is the norm

When a new kid is born

But I fear that the muse

That we use to amuse

Might have to be wooed

To prevent being booed -

Which I want to avoid

Or to make you annoyed

In a time such as this

In your new state of bliss.

It’s come into my head

Concerning this thread

That to make it last longer

(And to be ever fonder

In my mind at least)

It would make it a feast

And a glorious beast

If it never was ceased –

We could break with the past

And make this one last

Forever and ever

In our wordy endeavour -

At least make the ton

Or a hundred and one

In the posting of rhymes

Any day, any time,

Any style, any line -

We should try and converse

In our quite matchless verse.

As you see from above

My lines are askew

But please think of the dove

And with kindness anew

Forgive with indulgence

If you can’t muster love.

Now it’s the rhyming

That’s come all adrift

At least there’s still timing

(Some say it’s a gift)

I don’t think I agree

As you probably see

I think that the knack is

To put in the practice.

I spent quite a lot of time......

Searching for lines that rhyme

So I could join this game of verse

But alas...... I'm a better nurse!

Thank God no one's life depends

on the script from my pen

For their future would be dire

And they would surely expire!

To be a good nurse

Is never a curse

And if we rehearse

We can all rhyme in verse

If you want to have fun

Or contribute a pun

I'm sure it is splendid

And what was intended

When Ken the kind-hearted

This great thread has started

To join and have fun -

For each and everyone

Was his worthy endeavor

And it helps if the weather

Is cloudy or raining

To work at the training

Of bending a line

And keeping in time

Of knitting the brow

To create that one 'wow'

That all of us crave

From cradle to grave

That sets us apart

And gives us all heart.

Welcome aboard Aunt Doty

glad your here with us

lots of fun as you will see

take a seat right on the bus

Our destinations layed out

our journeys just begun

lots to learn no doubt

but we are having fun

Of this I'm sure you know

we're practicing at verse

and we're learning as we go

that the bus sure beats a hearse

I do have one troubling thought

it concerns our driver

and if in fact a map was bought

so this thread will be a survivor

Thats all for now

I'm out of words

I don't know how

my brain's gone to turds

Hello to Aunt Doty

It's great to see you here

To Join in on the thread

And spread a little cheer

It's true what Carol said

This thread should never end

As time goes by,word will spread

Across all the known lands

Telling a tale of scribes so bold

Who braved the written word

And wrote with gay adandon

Be it sublime or absurd

Who cared not for convention

Didn't mention the word finish

Their hunger for another verse

Never seemed to diminish

Sometimes, I find it quite demeaning

Churning out this light-weight dreaming (but)

It’s very fun, as kids these days

Say from ‘neath their purple haze.

They’ve no respect for grammar either

As they chat across the ether -

But now I find I’m just slip-streaming

It rhymes OK, but it’s lost deep meaning.

It’s plain to see I’m now addicted

Caught in verse that’s rather slight

No-one said, or half predicted

It could lead to such a plight.

I wonder if my talent lies

In writing birthday cards and such?

It would make the moments fly

But fear it wouldn’t pay too much..

Writing lyrics can be tiresome

Irksome even (in degree)

Other times, it leads to freedom-

Makes those inner Demons flee

Spirits rise and spirits fall

Keeping at it’s hard sometimes

Then that moment when it all,

Falls in place, and even rhymes!

I wonder how many words we've used

Written down or just perused

I have good news you must not miss

I did a vocal with hardly a hiss

I'm still in shock oh will it last

My recordings no longer second class

I travelled my room with my mic

Till I found a place the computer would like

I must confess though over the moon

On playback I was out of tune

Ps, We must finish some of the songs started on here, any one got another verse, I'll think of a tune that we can rehearse, I don't think that I can stop rhyming, the kettles boiled, perfect timing
