† † † † † † † † ††As Time Goes By

So the 14th of November Nineteen Twenty Eight,
Means nothing to you, yet itís a special date,
To me it is notable itís the day of my birth,
Almost eighty-eight years since I came to this earth,
A life full of learning, happy days , some sad,
But on the whole itís not been too bad,
My family and friends I sing high their praises,
Some strangers Iíve met in manís seven phases.


Wonderful times through those years of my teens,
I had lots of energy; I was full of beans,
New suits, clean-shaven, not a hair out of place,
Girls had stiff petticoats that were trimmed with lace,
Court shoes, high heels, straight seams in nylon hose,
On Saturday night at the dance they would pose,
So slim, so feminine, rustling skirts broke the hush,
Of course in those days my thoughts made me blush.

At my age I sit and watch the girls going past,
Most fat and unkempt; their marriages donít last,
They all wear the same, the uniform of teens,
Tight trousers, anoraks, fag ash and jeans,
Politeness, respect, itís all going downhill,
Itís been like this since they introduced the pill,
Kids with no Dad but with money to burn,
It all spells disaster, will they never learn.

Letís get back to those days when a man and his word,
You could rely on, and a woman to swear was not heard,
Why canít we all try to consume fewer calories?
Get back to basics, not material things and higher salaries,
When discipline at schools is administered donít moan,
After all said and done this should be taught in the home,
Lets teach deportment, honesty and charm,
Teach children these ideals, then thereís no cause for alarm.

K75cster your comment "Bring on November" No Thanks

† † † † † † †[size=32]November[/size]

It is November here in the U.K,
A damp and foggy dark dismal day,
A very fine mist that soaks you through,
Bare branches with cobwebs that hang with dew,
Emigrating birds, they have now gone,
Weíll not be woken with their morning song,
Wet leaves have fallen they stick together,
November in England has the foulest of weather.

Everythingís wet, theyíre indoors by their fires,
Dirtís thrown up by the swish of car tyres.
Double Decker red buses arenít red at the back,
The filth from the roads changes red into black.
House lights are on till eleven or more,
A waste of time really, theyíre back on at four,
The hedgerows are covered in old mans beard,
Same for tomorrow?†† Just as we feared!

The rear lamps of vehicles are closely followed,
Keep them in sight, if not theyíll be swallowed,
In November fog, wet mist and itís haze,
Thatís what its like, so be warned of these days,
When coming to visit you are welcome thatís true,
But please donít expect our skies to be blue.
People look huddled their necks seem to go,
They scurry along, shoulders high heads bowed low,

Roll on next month, thatís dry cold and freezing,
Away from grey days, folk coughing and wheezing,
To get there of course thereís November to suffer,
Glance at the calendar thereís no month thatís rougher,
Creepy damp cold that gets to the bone,
Makes one appreciate the comfort of home,
Draw back the curtain when leaving your bed,
Look out, to November, may just as well be dead!

Ah the modern take on the Canterbury Tales.

Really nice words too. The great thing about†this forum too†is that there is a place for good thoughts.

Ajays What a description of November, you must try a better Hemisphere for that month, If I could write so beautifully I would pen a short but fine description of November here, we do have clear sky clear mornings start about 5:30ish finish around 21:00ish we have the odd little cold day, called a cold snap, never a frost though 35degrees C†can be reached, warm beach filled days either ocean or river for those not employed to do other things. Endless roads to ride before the heat hits and stops one from riding in the northern parts. Down south its just a long lunch for the hottest part of the day to pass.
You know where you should be in November?
