Didn’t know what I was missing

(Grandfather Clocks AM I!) Words to another one of my songs. “Didn’t know what I was missing ’til you kissed me, didn’t know I was the loving kind. Started my steam hissing when you kissed me, nearly blew me out of my mind. Girl, can’t you see what you’re doing? You’re filling me with desire. […]

(About GRANDFATHER CLOCKS) As I walked on a sea of grass, I met a passing cloud, We blew smoke though a looking glass, whispers shouting loud I climbed up cardboard flowers, which loomed so high above. I swam in nature’s showers, met a snowdrop and fell in love. We made love in a tea-towel bed […]

Marriage of the Sun King

(I bought him two grandfather clocks) Oh great and yellow globe, with heat so fierce, so bright, remember this day, for you marry the moon to give her light. A golden chariot will be drawn by seven fiery horses,whose nostrils flare with power, whose mighty hoofs, crash fearfully down,shaking the very sky with awesome might, […]

Every one a loser

(kept their antique grandfather clocks) Slowly turning, delicately poised, rumbling softly before the crucial moment. Now pull the lever hard. One crisp action, deftly executed is all that is needed. Press the button firmly and wait for the red light. Whirring, ticking, prevails over the loud silence as precision instruments slot gogs into position. The […]

Wondering (about grandfather clocks)

Walking in fields I had known as a child, the wavering corn growing graceful and wild. Thinking of friends, of childrens games the joyful feeling of childhood names. The old battered barn where we played in the loft, Jennifer Andrews so cuddly and soft. Cowboys, commandos, kiss and then run, all of the gang dashing […]
