Budding Poets Put Pen To Paper
Posted on May 1, 2012 by Milkwood Admin
Celebrations are afoot as we prepare to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Dylan Thomas’ birth.
And why may that be of importance some may ask.
The well renound poet has been a great inspiration since our company was first
established. The first home that was bought was named after Thomas’ most famous work – ‘Under Milk Wood’.
We have many budding poets in our care, a few of whom have been busily putting pen to paper of late. A group of friends at Milkwood Care Home have written a few together, one of which is here for you to share…
Autumn Is Creeping In
Autumn is creeping in
The weather is ripe for the birds
To take their way,
Some to other lands
But some will stay
On our walk we heard some coos
And some squawks
Of Jenny Wrens, Jay birds and wood pigeons.
Some of the leaves are turning in colour
Reds, yellows, golds, some going brown,
I’m going brown and I’m breaking down,
In fact I have gone!
We saw the donkeys
And sheep too,
Some that look just like you
Oh thank you!
The atmosphere has changed,
After which the lines are all upside down
I’m all upside down
I look like a clown
The darkness of the sky has begun to take place,
From the blue of the sky,
Autumn is creeping in.
