Penny Farthing

inkdrop-200x200Guest Post

A Marvel of invention,

the people look on proud

as gentleman he makes is way

through the street and crowd

With View of lights and chimney sweep

through the streets he’ll bumble and creep

passing past animals he’ll make them leap

whilst their owners are all fast asleep

look around!

By the same Author: Confessions of a midnight eater

Rider is sat on seat – wood and of brass,

awaiting the whistle of peeler to pass

seeing the neighbourhood stare and pass by

as wheels make the feathered birds rise and fly

And as rider moves and bike starts to wobble

he looks out for odd shaped or very loose cobble.

But careful he must be – or else he will fall

So he keeps his head forward, and his body straight and tall.


     I’m an evolving writer/landscape photographer from Salford who has taken up poetry after the doctors put me on some enforced house leave. The pics I take are used in the blog or are used to create something for the blog! The blog allows me to play around with ideas – not only poetical, but also in short story form.
