Grey what can I say about Grey?
A Grey Day?
I can be grateful for the grey,
for it contrasts beautifully
with warmer tones,
warmer tones bringing
cheer to my bones,
A heart warming end to a Grey Day!
The dark grey days of winter do have their compensations,
we can laze in-front of a blazing fire
watching the flames, the colours,
Dad would always make perfect toast
over an open fire,
he was an 'expert toaster',
me, I always cremated mine
over the flames,
if not dropped into them!
Dad's were always just right,
he had the knack of angling the fork
for an all-over brown loveliness.
The deliciousness was made all the more
by his careful application of
The trick was patience,
I hadn't learnt that,
waiting my turn for the next piece
seemed like an eternity,
rather like waiting for spring!
Ah, simple pleasures!
