Lost Words Plus a New Word

Lost Words plus a New Word - Bill Church

(Based on the ideas from Robert Macfarlane's and Jackie Morris' Book-without the marvellous pictures or even the magical words!)



Pontificating, prattling, platitudes over a pint

Unbalanced, uncompromising, utterances

But brilliant beer boosts Brains!!!

Oh how I miss the Shoes!!!!            



Hankering for that missing, generous touch

Uneasy absence of that warm human clutch

Gripping on to one another is craved oh so much!



Spinning out hours after hours

Playing and watching

Over and over again

Reminiscing those great moments

Tedious for many but precious to us.



Social gathering mixing with many peers

Crucial for future direction

Hubs for varied learning 

Objective thinking honed

Opportunities to light a hundred sparks

Looking for ways for subversion (uniform and petty rules)



Zoom tonight! So rearrange those bookshelves

Observe our many varied intellectual tomes

Optical illusion hiding the pyjama trousers 

Melancholic feelings pervade for what is missed.
