  • Sicily - 2019

    Top o' the day to you, reader. I wrote this poem replete with alliterations shortly after I had returned from my holiday in Sicily, around which I bicycled.

    Sicily - 2019

    Swaddled in sweet salty smell
    And fragrant, florid flowers,
    On roaming rugged roads I dwell
    Betwixt the beauteous bowers.

    The steel-steed steadfast sties steep,
    Which warmeth the wind within,
    And holds heaves of heart in a heap,
    Giving a great goosefleshy grin.

    Lo! on this lush, lore-laden land
    Six Sicel spires sudden stand!

    Heyday! How heated the haste
    Wherewith flinging footfalls fly
    That the toothful triumphant taste
    My mazement's mad maw mollify.

    While no grains can his guts grudge,
    Down a dale drives my dobbin
    With no need now for me to nudge

    Pushing the pedals on and on.
