Archie has to go back to the Hospital tomorrow. He is rather laid back. He said to me. 'My symptoms are the same as someone I worked with.' 'How is he?' I asked. 'He died,' was his reply.

Red Apple. Every Boxing Day, Jimmy planted a row of seeds outside his back cottage door. He planted two seeds together, a broad bean and a pea.

The poet A lady said my husband, Fred. It is strange, but now I know it. I glance at his old sleepy head. He thinks he is a poet. Once, he was so slim and bright We loved to cuddle.

Josie I would be loved just as this wish demands You would take me, so how other can I be Lips to my throat, your carefree hands feel my body almost carelessly.
