Random Poem:

Hibernating With The Beatles

Submarines under yellow duvets,
Summersets mix with marmalade spread
Midnight dives on yawning oceans
Lighting up late breakfast in bed.
Wholesomely cool October evenings,
Fixing holes in dying fires,
Rainclouds sweep the far horizon
Water skimming motor tyres.
Gentle sleet falls soft on windows,
LPs stacked up by the bed
While she said 'I know what it's like to be,
From October through till February's dead.
Slice and serve a savoy truffle,
As diamond sky spins winter's sleep,
Kiss your eyes with golden slumbers
Till good day sunshine's within reach.
