Polliver Plum

Polliver Plum short poem

Photo by humbert15

Polliver Plum picked up bubble gum
And with it he wove a spell
Creating a dome each child could call home
Inside where the world was well

He travelled the land with singers and band
Attracting both girls and boys
He beckoned them in, gave each one a spin
In globes filled with treasures and toys

When Polliver called the young were enthralled
Delight swelled their infant hearts
Each dome that he blew promised wonders anew
And journeys to marvellous parts

Soon pastures and dales became dome-filled vales
And giggles and squeals rang wide
Domes danced and domes ran, some collided and span
With their precious ones cradled inside

No adult could come, for their lives were undone
So Polliver gathered the seed
With small lives unspoiled all evil was foiled
And the future was splendid indeed

I can't remember when I didn't write poems but as I've got older, I find they spill into my head, often at inconvenient times of the morning! I use to write them on my way to work, hence the title of my blog, but now I've given up to go trekking around in a campervan with my husband. Plenty of time to reflect on the world, though I don't claim to understand it any better....
