Bruin's Doggerel

Recommended Posts

Disclaimer: I don't 'do' poetry. I don't. Not at all.

So the following offerings 'just slipped out'.

Here's the first, called Radiance. I'm rather proud of it. It was written centuries ago when I was an impressionable teenager, about a girl who could always lift my spirits - and those of everyone else around her.

Puddled pavements and sodden clothes

Dry out under your smile

And showers of your words wash out

The gloom, and joy reigns awhile.

... and here's the second, untitled, (it doesn't really deserve one, as you'll see) written in a moment of inspiration, or possibly just mischief. With apologies to the songwriter Jimmy Kennedy.

If you go down in the woods today you're sure of a big surprise.

If you go down in the woods today you'll find the place full of guys.

For every bear that ever there was will gather there for certain because

The gays today go cottaging with a picnic!

... so now you know why I'm a non-poet. :lol:

For someone who doesn't 'do' poetry you 'do' poetry rather well.

The first I like a lot, the second (a fairy tale?) made me laugh.

Camy

My sentiments also Camy. I think Bruin shows quite a poetic flair.

I really liked his first one a lot, too.

:lol:

Hylas, I did get the variation on the Teddy Bears' Picnic, and thought it quite a humorous adaptation.

Just to make certain you know I am familiar with the song, please read the story at my home page at Codey's World.

Codey challenged us to finish a story he started, my effort is at, Best of Friends by Codey and Desdownunder.

Also you might like to read the other authors' stories who took up the challenge at: http://www.codeysworld.com/anthology/2007-bof/index.html
