Fire, by Kezia Owens

Nee, Naw, Nee, Naw.

On goes the siren of the fire engine.

Nee, Naw, Nee, Naw.

Going onwards, a battle to win.

Crackle, Crackle,

BANG, BANG, BANG!

Now the firemen hear the fire roar,

So water unto it they pour,

Still a scent of stifling smoke,

But the fire they did choke,

No one hurt,

Thanks to the alert,

I think they reached it,

JUST in time!

 

Long Journeys, by Kezia Owens

Oh, the torment,

Oh, the boredom,

Lo, the long-suffering that we need.

Heed the monotonous sound of the engine,

Droning me to sleep.

Five minutes later I stir,

And think an hour has passed,

But I’m still in the area that I saw last.

Overlooking villages, cities and fields,

Watching for our destination,

Feeling sick and desperate,

Because of the suspension.

At last, our surroundings look familiar,

Our journey’s end is drawing nigh,

As the motor slows down,

What a wave of relief rushes o’er me,

That I daren’t think of what awaits on the journey home…

 

 

 

Plants, by Kezia Owens

Plants come in all different sizes,

All the bulbs with different surprises,

They all come in different shapes,

Out of the bulb an original escapes.

*

Annual or alpine,

Bean or bush,

Crop or cross,

Flower or fungus,

*

Herb or hybrid,

Moss or mutant,

Seedling or sport,

Variety or vine.

*

We all love to see them grow,

In the sun or in the snow,

All things beautiful God made,

“Let it be,” that’s what He said.

*

Tennis, by Kezia Owens

The thwack of the balls,

The commentator calls,

The watchers shouting “whack it,”

Making such a racket,

The players groaning,

The fans moaning,

They’re on the telly,

And they’re getting sweaty

The winner rejoicing,

Not scared of voicing,

Because they have won,

And because they had fun!

 

Holiday Time! by Kezia Owens

Holiday time is just to begin,

A happy time with some of my kin,

Hopefully a time with not too much din,

Holiday time is just to begin!

*

We are staying in a house that over looks the track,

We can watch the trains going there and back.

So the room I’m sleeping in could be my little fort,

And I suppose the house is a castle of sorts!

*

A time away from home,

Though not to roam,

A lovely time with no want to moan,

Which is why I made a poem!

 

Rubbish, by Kezia Owens

Rubbish, litter everywhere,

On the ground and in the air.

Silly people just don’t care,

Leaving junk anywhere!

*

Garbage, trash, what a mess,

All it does is cause distress!

I know – I do not need to guess,

Waste, scrap, what a pest.

When I see rubbish I could pout,

All I want to do is shout.

I certainly have no doubt,

That people throw rubbish all about!

*

Do not be a litter-bug,

And put it in the bin.

It isn’t very far to lug,

All it’ll take is a min!

*
