Eight members entered our competition to write a different set of words to the song Daisy, Daisy. Many thanks to winner Neil Close for:
I’d like to tell you why
I was wary
Last week when you said goodbye.
‘Cos we’d had a damn good innings
And now big lottery winnings
Are due my way,
What’s that you say
You’re back ‘cos I’m your kind of guy.
We liked also Dorothy Galtry’s “Retirement – if only!
Let’s be lazy, sit on the sofa, do
Pass the chocolates – and the sudoku too
The crossword’s still not finished
Our brain power is diminished
We’ll have a rest then do our best
With a nice G&T or two.
Kath Denny came up with a message for tv cooks:
Jamie! Jamie! Pass me a hanky do!
I’m so weepy, and it’s all because of you!
Am trying to cook a dinner. Your recipe’s a winner
But my eyes smart each time I start
Chopping onions for the stew!
Other entries came from Marion Green, Val Cooke, Mrs K Armitage, Brian Hey and Nora Collinson
And now, this is a haiku:
Is when we seek to compose
The winning entry
It’s a Japanese verse form which has 17 syllables, five in the first line, seven in the second and five in the third. The challenge is to write as many haikus as you like on interesting subjects. No prizes except the pleasure of seeing the winners’ pieces in print.
