I am a real poet .. well! its taken me a long time to achieve such an almighty title and even today I shrug my shoulders and throw my arms up in the air and think they mean YOU not ME .. however it reminds me of childhood when one was a Writer and published at the tender age of 10 and a French Student at 3 years of age as I was encouraged to sound the gong and let the community and the world know my great status in life. However the New Yorker has a cartoon of two men behind desks (I am a woman behind the desk) and the caption reads: Now I lay me down to sleep! Put your head on your desk and cover with your hat is the answer as this morning I jumped out of bed read my watch upside down and checked the radio time and it was 0630 hrs in other words 6.30 am. Whew! I thought it was coffee time so I was up with the lark! As I had been busy swooning in Co-Congratulations from my Turkish Friend about our play online
www.poetrysociety.org.uk so its itinerary here and a bit of news there that I continue to write 2 hrs later.
When I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If any evil come to me
Holy Mary wake up!
If I die and I am good
I am bound for heaven
All Good Children
Go to Heaven
thanks New Yorker .. what a fun way to start the week .. in the middle of the World Cup Football in South Africa 2010! Nice work!
