No Hockey Today
1970’s KGH

Across the sports-hall floor
in aertex blue shirts
short, navy gym-skirts
and sugar bag pants
all girls together,  we dance.

We change from Scottish Reel and dozy doe
to Waltzing and quick- quick- slow
us tall girls reluctant as men
holding our partner just ‘so’
giggling and treading on their toes.

Pull yourselves together, girls, says Mrs G
or it’s hockey on the top field-
the snow won’t bother me.

Creative Writing Persons

Clare has expressed a wish for a creative writing section on this site.
I can see there are categories for bad poetry, poetry,stories and short stories to the right as I write this. Maybe that’s all that’s needed?
Or do we need a blog or two to represent the poets and the prosers?

Anyone else interested?
I could investigate starting up a ‘Poets Cornered’ type character (New name would be needed) and maybe we could have a separate one for ‘Purple Prosers’?

Ideas please.
