Wordsworth In Lockdown

Post by Tomliner »

I wandered lonely as a cloud,
Two metres from the madding crowd,
When all at once my name was called
To enter the Waitrose hallowed hall.

This was the pensioner’s special hour
I’d gone to get a bag of flour,
But I forgot -when through the door -
What I had gone to Waitrose for.

The Waitrose staff are extra kind
I told them it had slipped my mind,
They ask what else I had forgot
They clearly thought I’d lost the plot.

I phoned my wife again to ask
She reminded me of this special task
“I need some flour to bake a cake
With all that cream you made me take!”

“Ah yes, I recall” I had to lie,
I dared not ask what flower to buy,
But then I saw them at the tills
A host of golden daffodils

That’s great Graham. :thumbsup:
May I use it on our local retirement village website. Nearly everyone would relate to it.

John may I just point out that it wasn’t Graham who posted it but little old me.Yes if course you can use it as you request, I have no ownership of it at all. It’s a delightful short poem which I believe Is in the public domain and I hope your website readers all enjoy It. :) EricT

Aren’t poets supposed to have long unkempt hair Graham? Now your barnet’s gone I don’t think the title is appropriate ‘til it regrows. ;) EricT

Oops sorry Eric. Goes to show what we’re like here.

Thanks
