Well, I though it was time that I shared some more of my poems with the world. So I have decided to post the entire collection (not all at once!!) on my blog, in no particular order..
So here's the first one.
A Night in the Peak District
The last glowing embers of life
Smothered slowly by the silky shroud,
As darkness spreads his consuming cloak over the land.
Broken only by the plaintiff bleats,
Lambs seeking safety and shelter.
Fairy lights dancing and flitting along silent paths.
The silent silky glow covering all with a silvery shine
As peeping pipistrelles fly and flit
Seeking and searching in the silence.
Solitary stars shine in the sky
Like thoughts in a young mind.
Dreams drift, entering and leaving the mind
Like actors on a stage.
Dark shadows loom as the gloom deepens and grows.
Silent strangers watching and waiting, oblivious to the show.
The quiet crescent dimly fades as blood seeps across the sky.
Lightness entering all our hearts, the dawning of a new day.
And here's the second
With soft brown eyes, she surveys the scene,
Thoughts and rhymes flowing through her mind.
Here, but also there, alone with company.
Still like a rock, with warmth in her heart
She provides the inspiration.
Older than her looks allow
Through experience and sensation.
Strangely sensual is her allure
To those who feel her thoughts,
Providing meaning and hope.
Drawn like a moth to the aura,
Destiny's path is taken.
Into a world of more than this,
A dream, forever not to awaken.

What a week – was having a fun time making lots of fun things at nursery, then on Thursday mummy and daddy took me to the doctors. Some strange woman, stuck a needle in my leg and it really hurt. Mummy and daddy said it was MMR or something. Then I had to see another doctor – she was really nice and had a strange swinging monkey toy thing.
Daddy tried to play with my train set with me at the weekend, but he kept using even numbers of pieces not odd ones so I had to keep taking bits out. Daddy didn't seem to like me doing this. Eventually however, he gave up and put it away so I could concentrate on playing with my Noah's Ark.
Went shopping on Saturday – but couldn't find any good presents for anyone. Spent lots of time playing with the fruit in Tesco – found I could move the fruit trolleys if I pulled them hard enough.
Feeling a bit under the weather now – and quite sleepy – guess its this immunisation thing. Hopefully will feel better tomorrow.
Happy smiley Henry ;->

Went to see cousin Ben this weekend. He lives in a giant house a long long way from my home. The journey across seemed to take ages – I got through 1 sleep and 1 meal.
He has lots of space to crawl around and loads of toys.
Saw some strange things on Saturday – lots of bangs and bright lights – quite scary in fact.
Ben seems to have a strange animal in his house – it hissed at me and tried to hit me. Daddy said that it was a Sally Cat, and that I had to be gentle with it.
The journey home was not too bad – lots of sleeping, 1 dirty nappy and some food.
It was good to get back home – all my favourite toys were there.
