B .... Thursday Think Tank.

Things I would B

A sparrow, a daisy
a day by the sea

Chips and ice cream
afternoon tea

A walk with our dog
trees in the park

Black and white films
curled up in the dark

A place to come home to 
a smile amidst tears

Someone who'll love you
the rest of her years

All these I would B

Wish my slow brain could write pretty poems.

But I didn't worry & start with the moans.

'Cause my finger's fast and phoned poem-gnomes!
