In Print


The world is full of hobbies. Have you noticed? Mine is verse!
And I think that we human-beings could do a great deal worse
Than having a fixation, a passion, a desire!
It could be breeding budgerigars or singing in a choir;
Collecting butterflies, maybe, or learning about Crete;
Taking lots of photographs of people in the street!
The list goes on! It's never-ending. We are so diverse.
Some people are into acting and happily rehearse!
I saw the local print-makers had organised a stall
Where they could show their efforts and try to sell them all.
I saw it at the market and I stopped there, passing by
Because the great variety had really caught my eye.
For the fact that we have hobbies we all should give great thanks.
After all if we were 'idle hands' we might start robbing banks!

Another great hobby here:

How very nice your hobby can bring a price -my verse could be worse but I will leave the the poetry to the poets

I once had a phase where I became a passionate collector of lamp posts. Does that count?
