Hello Wor(l)dPress!


I have left that little link –

Might need it again I think?

Anyhow, what I’ll now do,

Introduce myself to you:

Over centuries gone past

(And I don’t just mean the last)

Ancestors from the UK

Moved to Africa to stay.

They set up the Colonies –

Now it seems that folks like these

Are quite poorly looked upon –

Days of Colonies are gone!

But they built things good and fine;

Never mind how those may whine

Who were backward when they came,

And who had to play THEIR game.

Subjugated though they were,

This then made it to occur

That advanced technology

In such countries came to be.

I have pride, there is no doubt

In all that they brought about,

And I really get annoyed

When it starts to be destroyed!

Now some things concerning me:

I like writing fantasy,

Music-writing, also do:

Symphonies; sonatas too.

Classical, though, is my type,

So they do not have much hype;

For I feel a melody

More than just four notes should be!

I’ve a blog that’s elsewhere run,

But I thought it might be fun

On this so much larger stage

My attention to engage.

By the way, not all I write

Do I versify; not quite!

Though I have a merry time

Putting nonsense into rhyme!

    Oh my goodness…. WELCOME!
    Now this is a treat seeing you on this site… you will get a lot more exposure for your books here because this is international.
    Have you found the others yet? Let me get you the links for them all.


    I’ll find you the others later on

    And then there is a delightful lady that you would love.
    A true artist’s soul – just go and look at the poem she wrote about the playground – written twice but from two different view points… she’s great!
