Poetic Writing of Robbie Kennedy Bennett www.rkbpoetry.co.uk

A taste of autumn and I’ve no complaint,
don’t consider me a sinner and I am no saint
but, how I cursed, I’ll tell you why
my favourite pen has run dry.

Writing what the fortune teller had said,
after my palm of hand was read,
she saw a hall in her crystal ball
and a crowd of people enormously big.
“Out of the mist I see Runrig”
she closed my hand so tender
“Dumfries or Dunfermline in December?

Ain't it Lovely Sometimes ©

Ain't it lovely in the evening sometimes
yes ain't it sometimes lovely when silent and still,
very little breeze, bare arms or short sleeve
peace and quiet with warmth beats winter chill

Always Have a Picture ©

Always have a picture
of the people who made you
the person that you are,
keep them in your thoughts
have them never too far.

An Old Fashion Evening in the Black Horse ©

I drove down Thompson Avenue
and felt an inviting inquisitive force,
for a second I saw the Black Horse
but of course it's a public dwelling of the past.
Sign of these modern times
local bars and pubs are closing,
so where are the youth dressing in new fashion,
and all that natural posing?

Another's Childhood I've No Wish to Steal ©

Honourable and honest
not elaborate but real,
childhood, ordinarily most often
work was the rule not steal

Earning a workable wage
and impressing romantically,
in the luxurious Black Horse
those were the days and good they be.

Autumn, I Can Feel You in The Air ©

Pleasant have the days been
bright and sunny, even warm and fair,
this world is grand without a care,
Autumn, I can feel you in the air
I stepped out this morning
the early time of five forty-five,
wondering, how long summer plants
yes how long, they will survive?

Aye, it Looked Bleak ©

My, it looked bleak
the second last day of the week,
aye, it looked bleak
the second last day of the year
it looked bleak, about here

I made my way to St Nicholas Church
to admire the frosty view,
walking out quite early
aye early as I usually do

ONLY DOING A FAVOUR © Robbie Kennedy Bennett www.rkbpoetry.co.uk

All of the days I’ve done
All of the jobs I’ve had,
Some have made me mighty proud
Some have ended up sad.

A FRIEND © Robbie Kennedy Bennett

A friend will know your feelings
And understand your fears,
A friend will want to help you
And dry away your tears.
