Poet: John McLeod, © 1989
And tall the time-piece stood against the old stone wall
Only the little cat came by to greet him now,
For us, this poetry reminds us of how time passes.
The Sign Read
Poet: John McLeod
"DISABLED TOILETS AT MELBOURNE PLACE,"
The sign so simply read
"DOWN UNDER" thoughts "PERHAPS YOU DO IT
STANDING ON YOUR HEAD?"
The thought inspired a chuckle
And filled my heart with cheer
Especially as they'd left
A handy lifebelt hanging near!!
The Poet, John McLeod, himself was disabled, but he enjoyed the humor of the sign and it made him laugh. The motivation for us in this poem or story was you have to laugh at things in life!
Poet: John McLeod (c)1971
Even a king can look at a flower
And feel humble….
Likewise, were I a two-fold being,
I could look at the stars
And find myself
Too insignificant to see.
No matter who you are - rich or poor - when you look around at the universe and all the wonders in it we should all be humbled!
