Hello Poetry Lovers
We’re back to the wonderful Zejel form. Lovely poet Trisha Broomfield
(Here’s a glamorous picture of her ) has written a wonderful cat zejel. My two favourites rolled into one!
A fun and clever piece, Trisha. Thank you so much, keep them coming
do read on;
The cat is learning saxophone
I say we’ll leave him well alone
he thinks he will become well known
he’s tried his paw at writing tunes
he has a pal, an owl who croons
they aim their efforts at full moons
they share a certain lack of tone
he’s started acting like a star
and splashing out he’s bought a car
he is convinced he’ll travel far
at least the noise will stop, can’t moan
his wardrobe’s full of sequined suits,
a range of silver glitter boots
his pal the owl practices hoots
is that his agent on the phone?
Wasn’t that delightful?! A lovely touching piece, and it’s made me look at Dobby with suspicion! Although I haven’t seen an owl around lately. Thank you again, Trisha, terrific piece.
Thank you for tuning in, PL’s, we’ll be back with more zejel delights real soon…..
