my sunday poem … # 18
spells & shells
Here is a silly wee verse I wrote way back in the summer of 1969 when I was all of 17. Me and my best pal Charlie Parker spent a couple of weeks down in Devon and Cornwall. We tried our hand at surfing off Minehead beach and chatting up girls. We were rubbish at both.
Ah………. the joys, frustrations and disappointments of 17 (and a number of other teen and later years!) 🙂
Charming, Chris, especially for a teenage boy.
Thank you kindly. 😃
That’s a cute verse. I’m sorry to hear you were so terrible at chatting up girls. I have a lot of sympathy. I was also something of an expert in not particularly impressing women. 🙂
I know. I have since discovered that women are complicated creatures.
That they are. 🙂
I really like this poem. It’s sweet ❤
That’s very nice of you. Thank you so much for dropping by.
