Pat's Poetry Books!
Who’d have thought in a million years, a web site I would see,
With pages dedicated to Me and my POETRY!
No–one would have thought it, just ten years ago!
That I’d be here writing words fit enough to show
For the best education that I really had,
Was one living life through happy times and sad!
I attended from the age 5 to 15 a little village school,
Where up to 40 in a class was known to be the rule!
We had a teacher for a year who taught us everything!
An hour at this an hour at that an hour learning to sing!
Then the following year another, would come and do the same,
Hitting us with the ruler, if we didn’t play the game!
And half the time I was at school, outside the door I’d be,
Sent out for playing about, acting the fool constantly!
Now I wish that I could tell all my teachers of yesterday,
“That I must have listened sometime, to what they had to say”
How I wish I could mail them, to ask them to look,
At this little web site, about me and my new book!
Sadly I can't thank them Now, for the efforts they made,
But I can thank friends and family for the part they played.
For NOT pronouncing H’s, unfortunately is how I speak,
So help with proper grammar, I’m always glad to seek!
Many friends have helped by reading my poems through,
Telling where an H' should go and where one shouldn’t too!
Without this help I may never, have got my work accepted,
For it would have come back with a note saying “REJECTED”

Dancing in the Moonlight!
She loves to dance in the moonlight,
With the stars that twinkle in tune,
And the music of the gentle breeze,
That in her ear does croon!
Then when she’s hot and excited,
She runs to the sea to swim,
Stripping off her gossamer gown,
On a daring impromptu whim!
Back on the beach she stretches out,
Akimbo looking at heaven,
Feeling so peaceful and full of joy,
Like floating on cloud seven!
Once dried off, with gown flowing,
Along the beach once more she'll race,
Tracing her earlier footsteps,
Dancing at a frantic pace!
She does this while the stars all glow,
Always in the moonlight she loves so,
Till the sun begins to rise,
With the dawn its time to go!
The above poem is the opening poem in this delightful book
That shows Pat's love of life and happy contented spirit.
Full of many wonderful poems to suit all tastes:
Many of them are short stories portrayed in rhyme
Full of mystery about Ghost's
Clouds float in and out of the sky, just like they do in our lives,
But no matter whether misty, heavy and black,
The sun is always shining above,
Symbolically we must weather the clouds,
Be they light and misty or heavy and black,
For they are part of life and it is through fighting
The heartache and pain with loving faith,
That we grow to be nearer God and the light above…
Even on the darkest days the sun is still shining there above,
Like God’s love for you … So ride the clouds,
Till you’ve risen above them, then you’ll be in God’s light of love!
These poetic words will help show the way…
If you're in pain ……….There are words to help heal!
If you feel lost………......There are words to guide!
If you are sad ........There are words to give joy!
If you feel love ... You will be lifted higher!
Hope you enjoy!

Born with no hope, sickly and weak,
Tormented, abused, week after week,
Taking all that life threw his way,
Till like a worm he turned one day!
Then he found pride instead of shame
He put an end to the bullying game!
He gained respect by standing tall,
Being there to help when other’s call!
Making friends who help him pursue
Freedom then they stuck like glue!
In a world where any self reliance
Means showing care not defiance!
Giving him aid in his hour of need,
Being a friend to help him succeed,
Teaching friendships really do last,
In spite of all that’s in the past!
He learned to love with forgiving,
Mistakes made just through living!
Then true love finely came his way,
To make his life rich in every way!
Is a wonderful collection of story/poems that show how all these creatures learn how to love, respect and admire each other. And most importantly how they learn to overcome envying others to love themselves for who and what they are...
