The Joy of Spring (poem)

Spring is life!
Newborn lambs twist and shout…
But spring is the time when the spiders come out

Spring is colour!
A riotous rainbow on display all about…
But spring is the time when the spiders come out

Spring is hope!
An annual re-charge that removes any doubt…
BUT SPRING IS THE TIME WHEN THE SPIDERS COME OUT !

“E is for… Ecru” (poem)

There are TOO MANY colours these days
I’m sure we could ditch a few.
Some colours are really useful
Like orange and green and blue.
But would anyone even notice
If we were to drop ecru?

Yellowish-brown, or brownish yellow
Nobody seems to agree.
Basic beige does the job for me:
Let’s remove the colour debris!
Imagine a world without ecru.
Shall we just try it and see?
