I mean, I'm really not a poet
And if I was, I wouldn't show it,
By posting on this page,
It might reveal my age,
I have too much respect for our Lord,
Who posts, yet oft is ignored,
His worth is far greater than mine,
Even if his lines don't always rhyme

Cotswold Roads, Eva Dobell

Those broad hill roads that lead away
Dusty and white, with margins wide
Of grass and myriad upland flowers -
Jewelled bands on either side.

Great beds of trefoil golden bright,
And slender harebells, clear and frail,
Scabious, and milk-wort pearly pure
Rock-roses, primrose-pale.

The wild geraniums' fragrant tide
Massed clouds of such celestial hue,
The very sky seems fallen there
In drifts of azure blue.

And still the broad white road leads on
To some grey village, nestled deep
In the hill's dimple, where the elms
Seem sentries dropped asleep.

A Cotswold village that has dozed
For centuries thus grey and old,
Under the slope that breaks the wind
That sweeps across the wold.

The wind that sweeps across the wold,
Where dried bents whiten to the sky,
And like the voice of silence flits
The lapwing's wheeling cry.

And over hill and barren wold,
Where sun and fleet cloud shadows play,
The white roads that the Romans trod
Still hold their ancient way.

When you look back at the original pages of this chat we discussed beer film hometowns NHS clapping then on page 15 our first poem we continued discussing other things until on page 19 when the majority of posts became poetry based so as for positivity thread yes it was then became a poetry thread and has now moved subjects again but has evolved away from its roots

Back to positivity, poetry and Captain Tom !!

Some very welcome rain-showers this morning to help the parched lawn and flower-beds.
Nothing wrong with free speech or having an opinion - as long as it matches mine !!

Eva Dobell? Would that be any relation to the legendry Mr Dobell the Wines and Spirits Merchant from Cheltenham? Lovely little pub that used to be....

In terms of positivity, what beautiful weather . Have just spent a couple of hours re-potting the chlamydia (or some such thing..anyway its reddish and spikey) they all seems to have got blown out their pots in the winds.

Now sat back with a fantastic pint of Churchend's Vicar's Ruin. It's been settling and keeping cool under an old recycling box but the pint I've just poured from the polypin still has a good hint of carbonation and tingle on the side of the tongue before the hops and the long malty finish. Almost a perfect light coloured bitter for the garden sunshine. Going to go down well with my ploughman's. Homemade pickles, chutney, eggs and onions.....some home baked ham a wedge of Liz Godsells single cheddar that my mother acquired from Stroud Farmer's Market just before the lockdown and some homemade soda bread that I baked this morning.....oh and some green and red stuff that lives in the bottom of the fridge that women eat. QPB's granddaughter coming around to socially and distantly wreck the garden in a bit...but we'll enjoy every minute of the afternoon. A half decent replacement for not being in Marseilles this weekend for the European finals.

Positively yours....KPB
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

And yet more fence painting. I’m sure we’re doing next door’s now
