Time Traveller


BLUE MONDAY
TIME TRAVELLER

Next time you go to London,
Make sure that you're aware
Of this celebrated gentleman;
You'll find him everywhere.
He's lived before; he's living now;
He'll be living when you're gone.
His immortal life-span 
Goes on and on and on!


The plaques look very authentic,
But that is just a rumour.
They're here to show you that the Brits
Still have a sense of humour.
But wait! There's more! Why, here he is!
On the cover of a book!
That proves the gentleman exists.
Go to London! Take a look!

WHEN I AM OLD

'When I am old' said Daisy,
'I'll sit beneath a tree
And I'll be wise and clever;
People will visit me.
I'll sit there in my rocking-chair
With a shawl around my shoulder
And everyone will look-up to me
Because I'm so much older.
The tree will be big and shady
To shelter me from the sun,
And I'll be a sweet old lady,
Welcoming everyone.'
' But' said Mother, 'How do you know
The right tree will be growing?
There may not be a handy tree.
There's just no way of knowing.'
'Then I'll plant a tree!' said Daisy,
'A big tree of my own!
When I am old, the tree will be big!
Both of us will have grown!'

I love the tree-planting. I plant trees whenever and wherever I can.

Brilliant signs! When I was in England one year I found a plaque that says "On this date in 1476 nothing happened." I had to bring it home and hang it on my house here in California!
