Plog …. ( Poetry blog)

John Lennon # Barbara Windsor # Paolo Rossi

Four decades now
Please give peace a chance
John Lennon still sings
Of love and romance
A big crock of gold
And a punk with some pep
I just saw the film
By Temple and Depp
Palladian wings
Grand Frenchpark House
It’s sweeps and it’s lawns
With duck pond to douse
Artists can hear
The colours of spring
They also can see
The wind as it sings
Parturient-like swillers
Of black creamy stout
Long days on the docks
Before every bout
Dame Barbara Windsor
Has left us last day
With bold Paolo Rossi
Sleep softly I pray
Eighteen soft strokes
Are tolling at noon
Avoca’s church bells
As winter sun swoons.

Beidh mé ar ais…Sláinte.
