Read the lyrics - A Taste of Gin



I lost him in the garden, many years ago
I wonder if they'll dig him up
where the the motorway has to go

He was a sweet old man, with a taste for gin
And he couldn't leave the ladies alone
So I had to do him in.

He was the love of my life
Oh I miss him so

But he couldn't leave the ladies alone
And so he had to go
And so he had to go

Is he the reason, my roses bloom so red
Or did I lay him down,
under the vegetable bed

Do I imagine it or do my carrots taste like gin?
Or maybe he is why,
my apples taste of sin.

He was the love of my life
Oh I miss him so
But he couldn't leave the ladies alone
And so he had to go
And so he had to go

When the road goes through, I don't know what I'll do
I just hope my secret gets locked away,
under that motorway
under that motorway

He was the love of my life
Oh I miss him so
But he couldn't leave the ladies alone
And so he had to go
And so he had to go
And so he had to go

Trinity Harp

Nestled in curves Strings wait Silently Reminiscing Over haunting tunes


Poem posted on Twitter and Photo on Flickr


Strings in the Trinity College Harp

Poppy rest in peace

Stand still
And breathe
It'll pass
This emptiness
And loss

Life's lived
Life ends

In this moment
Memories
Are hidden
Behind
Sadness

Stand still
Breathe deep
And say
Goodbye

When my tears dry
Memories of you
Will ease this pain
Rest in peace

Greeting


Hello!
You're home
I've been waiting

You open your mouth to speak,
Which turns into a wide yawn
Then you stretch into an arch

Hello!
You're home
I’ve been waiting

While waiting and listening out
You're eyes drifted closed
And you curled up to sleep

I just dozed
For a little while
Until you came home

You were listening out
For the sound of footsteps
For the keys rattling

Welcome home!

You greet me
Rolling over at my feet
Fur rubbing across the carpet
