The Six Nations

Italy, Ireland
Wales, Scotland and France
Not forgetting the English
Who stand a fair chance
Of winning the six nations
By ruck and by maul
For victory is insight
With elliptical ball
And muddied persuasion
To kick and to run
Whilst the rest of us watch
Drink beer and have fun!

Sonnet to Venice

Venice; the Queen of Adriatic Sea
Who lies amidst the halcyon lagoon
In patchwork of canal’s antiquity
As star beneath the sapphire sky and moon
Like diamond set in royal diadem
Venetian crown that shimmers very bright
With gondolas encased in crystal gem
The jewel that shines in the celestial night
Yet Bridge of Sighs yearns softly and may weep
To spill a million tears into the stream
And fill the moonlit bay and rivers deep
As sorrow whispers move Venetian dream
       Still city calls and beckons magically
       To those who are bewitched by her beauty
