Rose's Poem

It was dark. It was silent and cold
Not a creature stirred… not even the bold
But in the east a shimmer of light
Began to glow to eclipse the night
Into the stillness seeped an eerie sound
Like baby elephants tramping the ground
The sound became louder and clearer until
Priors Hall ladies charged over the hill.

They brandished their clubs with their heads held high
And ranted and raved as they threatened the sky
The charge for the tee; a St Trinian army
Others looked on thinking they were barmy

Some hit the fairway; some hit the hill
Some hit the rough; their balls there still

They played through the morning and on through the day
Until the light had frittered away

Then they left the course exhausted and spent
To the clubhouse replete and content
They ate and they drank and chattered aloud
A friendly, happy, gossiping crowd

The time ticked on as their laughter roared
They studied their cards to see what they’d scored
Then one by one they drifted away
And each one thought: Another great day.

Christmas Competition 2 December 2017

Well Done Maria, lovely beard!


Thanks again for the supporting my chartity and congratulations to all the winners.

Thank you all for turning out.


 


 

Everyone enjoyed the day, I was delighted that I hit 6 good drives for the Drive In.
