WHAT AYEAR SO FAR THIS HAS BEEN

MY HOME HAS NEVER BEEN SO CLEAN

WHILE WE WAIT LIFE GOES ON

WE MUST DO ALL WE CAN

TO KEEP SAFE IN GODS LOVE

THIS WEEK FREDDY GRANDSON IS 18

I FEEL I SHOULD BE WRITING

ABOUT ALL THE THINGS

THAT HAVE HAPPENED SINCE MY LAST ONE

THE MAIN FACT IS THAT REV JOSHUA AND

HIS FAMILY HAVE JOINED US AT LAST

NOW THE PROCESS OF GETTING TO KNOW

EACH OTHER BEGINS

GOING OK SO FAR

SO IT SHOULDN’T TAKE US LONG

KNOWING HOW FRIENDLY WE ALL ARE

WE WILL ALL DO WHAT WE MUST

TO MAKE THINGS WORK FOR US

A FEW CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE

MOSTLY DUE TO THE NASTY VIRUS

THESE HAVE TO BE DONE OF COURSE

JUST REMEMBER THEY WONT LAST

ONLY TILL THIS HORRID VIRUS IS PAST

SO BE GOOD AND REMEMBER HANDS – FACE

SPACE

THE SANATISING COMPANYS HAVE MADE A

SMALL FORTUNE

PERHAPS WE SHOULD ALL BE BYING SHARES!!

KEEP SAFE

Ann O’Sullivan, 2020

191 DAYS WE HAVE BEEN IN LOCKDOWN

FROM 23 MARCH TILL TODAY 1ST OCTOBER

OH HELP US LORD PLEASE TO DO AS ASKED

WASH HANDS – SPACE APART – WEAR MASK

HOW HARD IS THAT?  EVEN I CAN DO IT!

WE ALL WANT VIRUS TO FINISH  WE ALL

HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER TO GET RID OFF

WHICH MEANS WE DO AS WE’RE ASKED

I UNDERSTAND IT IS VERY  HARD FOR SOME

BUT ALL OF US ARE SUFFERING

LIKE ALL OF YOU I DON’T WANT ME, MY FAMILY

AND FRIENDS TO BE ILL OR DIE

ITS AS SERIOUS AS THAT  SAD TO SAY

SO PLEASE A FEW MONTHS OF DOING AS ASKED

WILL HOPEFULLY HELP TILL ALL THIS IS PAST

WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE I SEE ON TV GIVING

US THEIR POINTS OF VIEW HOW DARE THEY

WE ALL SHOULD BE WORKING TOGETHER

PARTY POLITICS SHOULD NOT BE INVOLVED

VIRUS DOESN’T CARE WHO YOU VOTE FOR

UNITY IS WHAT WE SHOULD HAVE

PLEASE PRAY TO OUR LORD WE NEED HIS

HELP TO GUIDE AND KEEP US SAFE

I’M WORRIED ABOUT LOSING ANYONE OF THEM.

GOD BLESS

WE MUST FIND A VACINE TO STOP IT

IT MUST BE SO HARD FOR THOSE

THAT LOOSE JOBS AND MONEY

I FEEL SO SAD FOR THEM ALL

IT WILL GET BETTER

IF WE ALL WORK TOGETHER

I PRAY TO THE LORD THAT WILL BE SO

PLEASE PRAY WITH ME

Here are more poems from Ann O’Sullivan just before the weekend.

OH MY HOW TIMES FLIES

SUNDAY 5TH JULY TODAY

ZOOM SERVICE THIS MORNING

WILL BE DIFFERENT FOR ME

REV NICHOLAS IS DOING SERVICE

FROM HOLY TRINITY

I WAS ASKED TO BE THERE IF NEEDED

GWEN AND SUSAN MELHUISH PLUS

SUNNY AND DON

SIX OF US ALL TOGETHER

ALL WENT WELL PLEASED TO SAY

COUPLE OF BLIPS ON COMPUTER

WHICH WILL BE SORTED I’M SURE

IT IS SO DIFFERENT AT COMMUNION

WITH NO WINE ONLY WAFERS

VERY SLOW RETURN IT WILL BE

WITH HYGIENE AND DISTANCING

LOOKING FORWARD TO THE DAY

WHEN WE WILL BE BACK AT CHURCH

PLEASE KEEP PRAYING TO OUR LORD

FOR HIS LOVE AND GUIDANCE

TO HELP US ALL BACK TO OUR

WONDERFUL HOLY TRINITY

**********************************************************

TODAY IS LAST SATURDAY IN JUNE

3 MONTHS NOW IN LOCK DOWN

BALCONY WILL BE AS FAR AS I  GO

AS IT IS NOW RAINING

GOOD FOR THE TREES AND PLANTS

THE SMELL OF THE EARTHS FRESHNESS

BEATS CAR FUMES ANYDAY

NOW WHAT TO DO FOR THE REST OF DAY

HOUSEWORK ALL DONE AND ITS ONLY 11A.M.

AT LEAST 12 HOURS TILL BEDTIME

I CANT SPEND ALL THAT TIME WRITING

HAVE PHONED FAMILY AND FRIENDS

THIS IS THE WORST PART OF LOCKDOWN

THE LONELENESS WHEN ON YOUR OWN

HAVE ALWAYS BEEN USED TO GOING OUT

WHERE EVER AND WHEN EVER I WANT

NOW BORIS TELLS ME WHAT I SHOULD DO

BLOODY MEN ARE SO BOSSY

BUT I DO TAKE NOTICE OF WHAT THEY SAY

JUST WISH THAT WOULD APPLY TO ALL

THOSE THAT BREAK THE SHUTDOWN RULES

I REALLY CANT UNDERSTAND WHY

AS IT IS JUST SO MEAN AND SELFISH

DEAR LORD PLEASE LET THESE PEOPLE SEE

THE HARM THEY ARE DOING TO OUR WORLD

WE ALL NEED TO PRAY TOGETHER

TO EVERY LORD THAT WE PRAY TO

FOR HELP AND LOVE FROM THEM ALL

MOANING OVER, NO MORE COFFEE TODAY

TIME FOR A GLASS OF BAILEYS

**********************************************************

A FUNNY SATURDAY TODAY

ITS BEEN WET AND VERY WINDY

SO HAVN’T WALKED VERY FAR

JUST ALONG THE BALCONY

SUNDAY IS SO DIFFERENT

ZOOMED WITH CHURCH IN MORNING

THEN WENT TO SEE MANDY FOR LUNCH

BOTH LOVELY THINGS TO DO

GREAT TO SEE PEOPLE FROM CHURCH

HOPE TO SEE SOME ON WEDNESDAY

MANDY I HAVNT SEEN SINCE VIRUS BEGAN

A LIFT FROM TONY TO RAYNES PARK

SAW ALEX HE’S BACK TO UNI NEXT WEEK

MANDY IS WELL, KEEPING VIRUS AT BAY

SO GLAD I GOT TO SEE THEM

NEXT WEEK WILL GO AGAIN IF I CAN

IT HELPS ME KEEPING A RECORD LIKE THIS

IT SHOWS ME HOW BLESSED I AM

TODAY IS WEDNESDAY SO OFF TO CHURCH

SAT AND LISTENED TO PEACE AND QUIET

PRAYING TO OUR LORD FOR HIS HELP

THEN PEOPLE ARRIVE GOOD TO SEE THEM

WE CATCH UP ON NEWS AND GOSSIP

PAM’S BIRTHDAY TODAY WE SANG ‘HAPPY

BIRTHDAY’ AS WE GAVE HER A CAKE

DON’T TELL BORIS WE SANG IN CHURCH

AND THAT NO CAKE WAS SAVED FOR  HIM

KEEP SAFE DEAR FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

Here are two more poems from Ann O’Sullivan

BUSY DAY SO FAR I’M PLEASED TO SAY

ZOOMED THIS MORNING FOR SERVICE

DANIEL PRESIDING, MARK PREACHING

TO BE ABLE TO DO THIS TOGETHER IS GREAT

THEN OFF I WENT WALKING WITH HELEN

TO RICHMOND PARK THIS TIME

THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE IS AMAZING

NO DEER TO BE SEEN GRAZING

JUST PEOPLE AND BIKES, LOTS OF BIKES

CHILDREN AND ADULTS EN MASS ON BIKES

WATCH OUT MUM THEY’RE BEHIND YOU

HELEN WAS HEARD TO SAY QUITE OFTEN

HAVN’T THEY HEARD OF TWO METRE GAP

OBVIOUSLY NOT IN SOME CASES

IGNORE ADVICE GIVEN THINK THEY KNOW BEST

BUT THE VIRUS DOESN’T CARE ABOUT THAT

THE OTHER THING VIRUS WONT NOTICE

IS THE COLOUR OF YOUR SKIN

IT DOESN’T MATTER TO VIRUS WHY DOES IT

MATTER TO YOU

BLACK LIVES MATTER OF COURSE THEY DO

LOOK WHERE JESUS CAME FROM

JESUS AND DISCIPLES SKIN WAS DARK

GET RID OF BIGATORY AND HATRED

ALL PEOPLE MATTER TO GOD, MOHAMMED,

BUDAH, RASTA AND OTHERS PRAYED TO

WE NEED THEIR HELP TO END ALL THIS HATE

PRAY TO OUR LORD ABOVE

PLEASE ASK HIM TO SHARE HIS LOVE

AND ASK HIM TO TELL ALL HIS MATES

WORK TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD OF ALL

MAKE THIS PLANET A WONDERFUL PLACE

**********************************************************

ISOLATION HAS GOT TO ME

KNOW ITS WHAT’S EXPECTED

STOP NASTY VIRUS SPREADING

NEED TO FIND MORE THINGS THAT

NEED DOING WHICH HAVE NOTHING

TO DO WITH CLEANING

I NEEDTO GET DOWN AND DIRTY

NO GARDEN TO DIG, OR GRASS TO CUT

BALCONY DOESN’T NEED SWEEPING

CANT VOLUNTEER FOR ANYTHING

NOT SUPPOSED TO GO OUT FOR LONG

SO WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THIS TIME

PRAY TO OUR LORD AS I ALWAYS DO

ALONG WITH SINGING A HYMN OR TWO

OUR LORD MUST HAVE A GREAT SENSE

OF HUMOUR LISTENING TO ME SING

HELEN IS WALKING WITH ME THIS WEEKEND

OVER THE HILL AND BACK AGAIN

MANDY AND I SPEAK DAILY HAPPY TO SAY

I LONG FOR THE DAY WHEN  ALL WILL BE FREE

FROM VIRUS, RACISM, AND DONALD TRUMP

THERE YOU GO I FEEL BETTER ALREADY

I’LL GO AND EMPTY WASHING MACHINE

KEEP SAFE MY PRECIOUS FAMILY AND FRIENDS

KEEP PRAYING TO OUR LORD

Here are two more poems from Ann O’Sullivan

BEEN  TO HOLY TRINITY TODAY

TO SEE MY FRIENDS AND PRAY

THE AMBIENCE SO LOVELY TO FEEL

SAT AND  PRAYED LET IT ALLWASH

OVER ME

CHATTED WITH FRIENDS NOT SEEN

FOR A WHILE

EVEN MADE ONE OR TWO SMILE

FRIENDS TO HELP ME TO CHURCH AND BACK

I EVEN MANAGED THE BUS TWICE

THANKS BORIS I EVEN GOT TO WAITROSE

I KNOW I MUSTN’T GET CARRIED AWAY

WE STILL HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO

MAN IT REALLY MAKES ONE APPRECIATE

FAMILY AND FRIENDS PEOPLE WHO CARE

MAKES BEING AT HOME EASIER TO BARE

NEXT ADVENTURE IS SUNDAY AFTER ZOOM

AM GOING TO SEE MANDY AT LAST

HAVNT SEEN HER DURING SELF ISOLATING

I WASN’T ALLOWED TO VISIT MANDY

SHE HAS NO INMUNE SYSTEM BECAUSE OF M.S.

SO WAS DEEMED TO RISKY TO BE VISITED

CURFEW HAS LIFTED A LITTLE SO WE ARE GOING

FOR IT ON SUNDAY LONGING TO SEE HER AGAIN

THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR LOVE AND CARE

STILL A LONG WAY TO GO TILL WE’RE THERE

I KNOW YOU WILL BE WITH US ALL THE WAY

I’LL KEEP PRAYING FOR THAT DAY.

**********************************************************

TWELVE WEDNESDAYS IN LOCK DOWN

HOW TIME FLIES WHEN HAVING FUN

CLEANED, DUSTED AND POLISHED

MORE THAN I HAVE EVER DONE

NOW WHAT TO DO I ASK MYSELF

LIMITED AS I AM, CANT GO TO FAR

AS I HAVE TO COME BACK AGAIN

SCARED TO LET IMAGINATION RUN

IN CASE I END UP HAVING FUN

OH HOW I LONG FOR THAT DAY

STAY WHERE YOU ARE ALL SAY

THE ONLY GOOD THAT WILL DO

IS KEEP VIRUS AWAY FROM ME AND YOU

WHICH I SUPPOSE IS THE NAME OF GAME

SO ITS BACK TO WHERE I STARTED

GOT ANY IDEAS PLEASE PASS ON

ONE EYED LADY WANTS SOME HELP

WOW NEVER GUESS WHAT’S HAPPENED

TODAY BORIS HAS MADE ME A ‘BUBBLE’

AS I LIVE ON MY OWN HE’S LETTING ME

BE WITH SOMEONE FROM MY FAMILY

I CAN GO TO THEIR HOUSE TO VISIT

AND THEY THE SAME TO MINE

ALLELUJAH AND THANK YOU  BORIS

HELP US ALL DEAR LORD I PRAY

HELP RID THIS VIRUS FROM OUR LIVES

KEEP US SAFE IN YOUR CARE AND LOVE

TODAY AND EVERYDAY

**********************************************************

AS A ‘BUBBLE’ I HAVE BEEN INVITED

TO DAUGHTERS HOME FOR LUNCH

THIS WILL BE THE FIRST OUTING

FOR THE LAST 3 MONTHS

I’VE BEEN AT HOME ON MY OWN

ONLY CONTACT HAS BEEN MY PHONE

NOW BORIS AND CO HAVE SAID I CAN GO

VISITING TO FAMILY OR FRIEND

I KNOW I’M GOING TO WANT MORE

BUT PATIENT I WILL HAVE TO BE

KEEP THINKING OF ALL THE PEOPLE

I HAVE YET TO GO AND SEE

WE HAVE TO WAIT TILL VIRUS GOES

HOW LONG THAT WILL BE NO ONE KNOWS

HOPE WE’LL BE ON MOVE FAIRLY SOON

MY ‘BUBBLE’ VISIT WAS TO DAUGHTER

OK I HEARD THE MOAN BUT KEEPS MIND FLOWING

PRAY TO OUR LORD EVERYDAY

TO KEEP ALL SAFE IN HIS CARE

TRUST ME THIS IS WHAT HE WILL DO

WITH ALL HIS LOVE TO ME AND YOU

**********************************************************

THIS IS A FUNNY OLD DAY

WEATHER NOT TO BAD

SUNSHINE, BIT CLOUDY NO RAIN

I AM SITTING HERE DREAMING

WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO

IN REAL TIME NOT VIRUS DRIVEN

A TRIP TO THE COAST I THINK

WALK ALONG THE SHINGLY BEACH

SOUND OF THE WAVES WIND IN HAIR

WHAT A LOVELY THOUGHT

AN ICE CREAM THEN SIT AND STARE

AT ALL DIFFERENT PEOPLE THERE

PEOPLE WATCHING IS A GOOD GAME

MAKING UP STORIES ABOUT THEM ALL

NOW ITS TIME TO COME BACK HOME

THE RAIN HAS COME TO ROEHAMPTON

DREAMING FINISHED FOR TODAY

CHECK KITCHEN FLOOR IS NOW DRY

ON WITH THE DAY AS IT USUALY IS

I ENJOYED MY TRIP TO THE SEA

WHEN I GO AGAIN COME WITH ME

I REALLY ENJOYED YOUR COMPANY

GODS LOVE TO YOU ALL I PRAY

KEEP STRONG IT WONT BE LONG

TILL WE’RE AT HOLY TRINITY AGAIN.

—————————————————————————————————————————

Here are two more poems from Ann O’Sullivan

GOVERNMENT HAVE TOLD US

WE CAN GO OUT FOR A WALK

AFTER ISOLATION FOR 10 WEEKS

RELEASED NOW FOR EXTRA TIME

WHICH I’M SURE WILL BE JUST FINE

I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GO OUT

BUT NOT ON MY OWN JUST YET

MANAGED TWO LOVELY WALKS

WITH HELEN FOR COMPANY

HAVE TO GO DOWN STAIRS TO

EMPTY BINS OR DO RECYCLING

TO THE POST BOX IN THE LANE

THEN BACK DOWN THE ROAD AGAIN

WILL CONTINUE TO DO THIS

TILL I FEEL SAFE AND THE VIRUS HAS GONE

FAMILY AND FRIENDS ALWAYS IN TOUCH

GREAT BUT NOT THE SAME AS A HUG

I MISS YOU ALL SO MUCH

WHEN THE VIRUS IS GONE AND WE ARE FREE

BACK TO HOLY TRINITY

CAN YOU IMAGINE PASSING THE PEACE

IT WILL TAKE AN HOUR AT LEAST

HERE’S TO THAT DAY, PLEASE JOIN ME

TO PRAY FOR WHEN WE WILL BE VIRUS FREE

Here are three more poems from Ann O’Sullivan

HOME ALONE AGAIN TODAY

THREE MONTHS NOW I’M SAD TO SAY

GO AWAY NASTY VIRUS

THE WHOLE WORLD WANTS YOU TO GO

SO MUCH LOSS, SUFFERING AND PAIN

YOU HAVE CAUSED THE WORLD

DON’T EVER COME BACK AGAIN

WE NEED TO HEAL TOGETHER AS ONE

IGNORING THE TRUMPS OF THIS WORLD

WHAT EVER PLANET HE’S FROM

DO YOU REALISE HIS MOTHER CAME FROM

STORNOWAY ON THE LOVELY ISLE OF LEWIS

WHICH IS THE ISLE OF MY BIRTH

AFTER ZOOM TIME SERVICE TOMORROW

HELEN AND I WILL GO WALKING AGAIN

IT IS VERY STRANGE TO BE ESCORTED

IT WAS ME THAT USED TO DO THAT

NOW  ROLES HAVE BEEN REVERSED

NOT SURE I LIKE IT,  BEING BOSY

TELLING WHO WHAT TO DO IS MORE ME

NOW NOBODY CAN HEAR ME

OPERATIONS LEFT ME WITH NO  VOICE

LIP READING WAS TOTALLY HOPELESS

THOUGH GRANDKIDS THOUGHT IT FUN

NOTEBOOK AND PENCIL HAD TO DO

MORE OPERATIONS BUT AS YOU

CAN HEAR CLOSE UP AND PERSONAL

IS WHAT YOU GET NOW

NOT THAT IT WILL STOP ME

I HAVE SO MUCH I WANT TO DO

FAMILY AND FRIENDS WATCH OUT

I’M GETTING MY MO JO BACK!!!!

MAY OUR LORD KEEP YOU SAFE

IN HIS LOVE AND CARE

**********************************************************

ZOOM CHURCH HAS CLOSED FOR TODAY

ANOTHER SUCCESS FOR ALL I’D SAY

SO NICE TO SEE YOU ALL EVERY WEEK

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ORGANISE

ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS VERY PRECISE

HYMNS I FIND DIFFICULT TO FOLLOW

TUNES DIFFERENT TO WHAT WE KNOW

A LEARNING PROCESS I RECKON

COME BACK EM ALL IS FORGIVEN

CAN’T WAIT FOR THE DAY TO COME

TO BE AT HOLY TRINITY ONCE MORE

GLOVES, MASKS AND APRON ALL READY

GOT CLEANING STUFF BY THE DOOR

WE’LL JOIN GWEN AND HER TEAM

TO BECOME HOLY TRINITY CLEANERS

WE WILL BE  CLEAN AND TIDY TO WELCOME

ALL WHO WISH TO COME INCLUDING

NEW VICAR REV JOSHUA REY AND FAMILY

THAT IS ALL YET TO COME, SOMETHING

FOR ALL TO LOOK FORWARD TO.

PLEASE KEEP PRAYING TO OUR LORD ABOVE

HE WILL SHOW US ALL HIS LOVE

RIDDING HIS WORLD OF CARONA VIRUS

SO ALL WILL BE HEALED AT LAST.

***************************************************************

DOES ANYONE ELSE TALK TO THEIR

TELLY OR IS IT ONLY ME

I WATCH NEWS TILL I’M SICK OF IT

ALL THIS HE SAID THIS OR SAID THAT

NOTHING BUT DISSAGREEMENT

HAVE THEY ALL FORGOTTEN

ALL ARE SUFFERING STAYING IN DOORS

BORED TO TEARS BY DOING CHORES

THIS BLOKE WHO WENT TO DURHAM

SO WHAT HE COULD HAVE GONE TO MOON

I CARE WHAT THE OTHERS ARE DOING

TO GET THIS VIRUS TO GOING

INSTEAD REPORTERS THINK ITS THEIR

RIGHT TO ASK THE SAME QUESTIONS NIGHT

AFTER NIGHT USUALLY I WOULD AGREE

LET THEM ASK WHAT THEY LIKE

BUT NOW IS NOT USUAL WE ALL NEED TO HELP

SO PLEASE PUT YOUR ENERGY TOWARDS HELPING

I’VE JUST SEEN A YOUNG PERSON ON TV SAYING ITS

THE LAST OF CLAPPING TONIGHT 10 WEEKS IS

LONG ENOUGH

PLEASE COULD YOU TELL THAT TO

THE VIRUS NOT ME

I SHALL CLAP TILL THE CORONA VIRUS STOPS

EVEN IF IT IS JUST ME!!!!

TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER KEEP SAFE

Two more poems from Ann O’Sullivan for you to read

THE SUNSHINE IS OUTSIDE MY WINDOW

ALL LOOKING LOVELY AND GREEN

WARM SO SUMMER CLOTHES APPEARING

T.SHIRT AND JEANS MOSTLY SEEN

LOOKING THROUGH MY WARDROBE

I AM LUCKY TO HAVE SOME NICE DRESSES

MAUREEN MY FRIEND AND I HAD PLANNED

A WEEK AWAY IN JERSEY

WE WOULD BE THERE NOW  BUT FOR THE VIRUS

WILL BE NEXT YEAR NOW TILL WE GET AWAY

IN THIS COUNTRY I THINK WE’LL STAY

STILL ONCE THEY RELEASE ME I WILL BE ABLE

TO WEAR SOME OF MY NICE HOLIDAY GEAR

OH IT REALLY SEEMS SO STRANGE TO ME

COOPED UP IN CASE I CATCH HORRID ALLERGY

I  WONDER IF I WILL BE ALLOWED ON A BUS

WHAT ON EARTH WOULD I DO IF I COULDN’T

START WALKING NOW I MIGHT MAKE CHURCH

PERHAPS SUNNY WOULD LET ME DOSS DOWN

IN THE CHOIR VESTRY OVERNIGHT

THEN I CAN HIKE BACK HOME AGAIN

OH PERISH THE THOUGHT I’M NOT THAT BRAVE

I’M TOO OLD FOR THAT LARK I LIKE COMFORT

SADIQ KHAN CAN GET ON HIS  BIKE

AND RIDE WHEREVER HE LIKES

ME I’LL WAIT FOR THE BUS

AFTER ALL I’VE GOT A PASS.

————————————————————-

DAUGHTER HELEN SAID LETS WALK

AFTER THREE MONTHS STUCK IN

YOU NEED TO HAVE MORE EXERCISE

WALK AND TALK IS WHAT WE DID

TO LOOK AT THE HOUSE I WORKED

IN WHEN GIRLS WERE YOUNG

WHEN THE FAMILY WENT AWAY

THEY LET ME AND THE GIRLS STAY

BIG GARDEN AND SWIMMING POOL

ALL LOOKS SO DIFFERENT NOW

LOTS OF BUILDING WORK GOING ON

HAVN’T WA=KED HERE FOR YEARS

WE USED TO WALK TO PALEWELL PARK

PADDLING POOL, SWINGS, PUTTING GREEN

SON IN LAW TONY LIKED PUTTING HERE

HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED SINCE THEN

WE DIDN’T GO TO RICHMOND PARK

SAVE THAT WALK FOR ANOTHER DAY

I AM SO LUCKY TO LIVE WHERE I DO

WHEN GIRLS WERE GROWING UP WE WANDERED

A LOT OF PLACES TO VISIT WE’D HOP ON A BUS

AND OFF WE GO WITH DRINKS AND PICNIC

OVER THE YEARS HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED

ALWAYS BEEN A BIT OF A WANDERER

NOT ON MY OWN I LIKE COMPANY GIRLS AND ME

OFTEN SEEN HEADING OUT  FOR EXPLORING

NOW ALL DONE AND DUSTED THEY ARE OFF

TO COUNTRIES NEW THEY LOVE TO EXPLORE

ME I STILL WANDER BUT I LIKE A CRUISE

FRIENDS TAKE ME ALONG WITH THEM

BEEN SO LUCKY TO HAVE TRAVELLED SO MUCH

NOW I’M STUCK HERE SITTING ON COUCH

PLEASE DEAR LORD WHEN WILL THIS ALL END

MY FEET ARE ITCHING TO GO WALKING AGAIN

**************************************************************************************************

Here are more poems from Ann O’Sullivan 2020:

I’M WATCHING THE BIRDS FROM BALCONY

IT MUST BE WONDERFUL TO BE SO FREE

TO SOAR VERY HIGH IN THE SKY

THEN SWOOP DOWN TO EARTH

SOME OF THE BIRDS I CAN NAME

PIDGEON , SPARROW AND PARROTS

ALL LOVELY BUT CROWS ARE BULLIES

THEY SQUABLE AND CHASE OTHER BIRDS

EVEN MAGPIES DON’T ESCAPE

ITS AMAZING THE CHANGES I’VE HAD TO MAKE

TO STAND WATCHING BIRDS OR BAKING A CAKE

WATCHING BIRDS WON YOU SEE

THOSE THAT KNOW ME WILL AGREE

HAVE NEVER SPENT SO MUCH TIME INDOORS

I AM SO FED UP WITH WASHING FLOORS

SO WHAT TO DO NOW READING ALL DONE

EXCITEMENT IS WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR

AT THE MOMENT ITS JUST TO GET OUT THE DOOR

BE PATIENT THEY KEEP TELLING ME

HOW LONG DO WE HAVE WAIT

DEAR LORD PLEASE HELP US ALL I PRAY

I’M JUST WAITING  FOR THE DAY

WHEN I CAN WALK THROUGH THE DOOR

OF MY CHURCH HOLY TRINITY ONCE MORE.

*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

WHERE I LIVE NOBODY NOTICED

THAT I HAD HUNG A FLAG OUTSIDE

FRIEND MAUREEN HAD ONE AS WELL

V.E. DAY 75 YEARS REMEMBERANCE

2 MINUTES SILENCE TO SHOW RESPECT

A SHAME THAT NOBODY CAME OUTSIDE

PERHAPS THEY WERE SILENT INDOORS

ON THURSDAYS WE’RE ALL VERY GOOD

AT CLAPPING FOR HELPERS AND NHS

TO MUCH BEING TOLD WHAT TO DO

I SUPPOSE THAT COULD BE A BIG CLUE

COULD HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR VERA LYNN

SO THEY CAN JOIN WITH HER TO SING

WE’LL MEET AGAIN IS ONE

WHITE CLIFFS OF DOVER ANOTHER

WHAT ABOUT A SONG FOR THE VIRUS

HOW ABOUT FAREWELL GOODBYE SOLONG

OR GOODBYE ITS BEEN HORRID TO KNOW YOU

TEMPTED AS I AM TO BE VERY RUDE

THIS NASTY VIRUS WONT BE MOVED

ANGLO SAXON I COULD TRY

BUT THEN I ASK MYSELF WHY

WE HAVE THE GOOD LORD ON OUR SIDE

LOVE AND TRUST WITH ALL TO ABIDE

GIVE THIS VIRUS A KICK UP THE BUM

THEN WE CAN START TO HAVE SOME FUN

*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

LOOKING ROUND MY SITTING ROOM

I AM AMAZED TO SEE THE TECHNOLOGY

I AM EVEN MORE AMAZED THAT I CAN ZOOM

I WAS NINE YEARS OLD BEFORE WE GOT T.V.

BLACK AND WHITE NO COLOUR THEN TO SEE

CHILDREN SO EXCITED PARENTS HAPPY TO

ALL TO DISCUSS WHAT WE WERE GOING TO VIEW

FOR MY MOTHER ANYTHING SCOTTISH WOULD DO

PLUS HORSE OF THE YEAR SHOW WHICH WAS GOOD TO

DAD WAS A POLICEMAN IN ‘B’ DIVISION CHELSEA

DRIVING THE SQUAD CAR FOR ALL TO SEE

WHEN AT HOME SPORT WAS THE NORM

ESPECIALLY SOUTHAMPTON F.C. WHEN ON FORM

WHEN I LOOK BACK AT THE TIMES WE HAD

WINDOWS ICED UP NO CENTRAL HEATING

FOG SO THICK YOU FELT YOU COULD EAT IT

EXTRA COATS ON BEDS BECAUSE OF COLD

ITS AMAZING I GOT TO BE SO OLD

ASKED A FRIEND TO TAKE CARE OF PET RABBIT

WHILE WE WERE AWAY IN HAMPSHIRE

WHEN WE CAME HOME NO RABBIT WAS FOUND

IT WAS EATEN FOR LUNCH ONE SUNDAY

RAG AND BONE MAN WITH HORSE AND CART

COLLECTING BAD CHILDREN ALONG THE ROAD

ALWAYS HID WHEN I SAW HIM COMING

BOUND TO BE ME I THOUGHT

THE SMELL OF COAL BEING DELIVERED

THE SMELL OF TAR BEING PUT ON ROAD

OH WHAT MEMORIES I HAVE OF THEN

NOW I ADD A VIRUS THAT HAS HURT THE WHOLE WORLD

PLEASE KEEP PRAYING SO OUR LORD CAN BE HEARD

NOW IM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE DAY

THAT BORIS WILL RELEASE US SO WE CAN MEET

SAY HELLO AND DANCE DOWN THE STREET.

I received another poem from Ann on Wednesday 6th May 2020

THE SUN IS SHINING THROUGH MY WINDOW

HOW LOVELY IT ALL LOOKS  OUTSIDE

GREEN TREES AND GRASS LIKE A MEADOW

OH HOW I WANT TO GO FOR A RIDE

ON A BUS 430/170 EITHER WOULD DO

AS LONG AS THERES NOT A LONG QUEUE

ON 430 I COULD GO TO PUTNEY TO WALK BY THE THAMES

OR ON 170 TO REDISCOVER HAUNTS I SHARED WITH FRIENDS

ITS STRANGE HOW WHEN ASKED TO DO SOMETHING

YOU SOON REALISE YOU WONT BE DOING ANYTHING

AFTER SEVEN WEEKS OF STAYING INDOORS

IM FINDING IT VERY HARD NOT TO BE BORED

WHAT WE ALL NEED AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME

IS FOR LIFE TO RETURN TO BEING JUST  FINE

I TALK TO MY LORD TO HELP ME ALONG

I EVEN ADD A HYMN OR A SONG

I KNOW ITS HARD FOR ALL OF US

WE HAVE TO GET RID OF THIS NASTY VIRUS

IM SO LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT DAY

WHEN WE CAN ALL GO OUT TO PLAY

PLEASE KEEP ON DOING WHAT WEVE BEEN ASKED

THIS COUNTRY OF OURS IS DOING A GREAT TASK

GREAT BRITAIN IS WHO WE ARE

I FEEL SO PROUD OF ALL WE HAVE  DONE SO FAR

WHEN VIRUS DOES GO, AND IT WILL

THE LORD WILL BE KEEPING US SAFE STILL

WHAT A WET DAY IT IS AGAIN

ALL AFTERNOON POURING WITH RAIN

I SHALL HAVE TO STAY AT HOME

ITS NOT A DAY FOR A  ROAM

SO WHAT CAN I DO TO KEEP AMUSED

OVER 6 WEEKS LOTS OF THINGS I HAVE USED

EVEN CANCER DIDN’T KEEP ME AT HOME

DON’T LIKE  SO MUCH TIME ON MY OWN

I AM GRATEFUL TO HAVE A LOVING FAMILY

FRIENDS AS WELL KEEP IN CONTACT WITH ME

GIVE MY FAMILY MY SHOPPING LIST TO BE GOT

WILL BE DONE WITHIN A TESCO  SHOP

I HAVE NOTHING TO MOAN ABOUT

I AM LUCKIER THAN MOST WITHOUT A DOUBT

ALL THIS I UNDERSTAND

JUST WANT SOMEONE TO HOLD MY HAND

GIVE ME A HUG AND A CUDDLE

WE’LL SOON BE OUT OF THIS MUDDLE

KEEP PRAYING TO OUR  DEAR LORD ABOVE

GUIDED BY HIS EMPOWERING LOVE

THE RAIN HAS GONE THE SUN IS OUT

HURRAH I HEAR YOU SHOUT WITH GLEE

I BET SHE’S GONE TO GET A GLASS OF BAILEYS.

Ann O’Sullivan

2020

I KNOW IT IS A PAIN

BUT HERE I GO AGAIN

TO WRITE SOMETHING DIFFERENT

I’LL TRY HARD NOT TO RANT

I LOOK OUT MY WINDOW AND I SEE

LOTS OF LOVELY GREEN TREES

SQUIRRELS CHASING ONE ANOTHER

WATCH THEM HAVE FUN WITH EACH OTHER

I ALSO LISTEN TO THE BIRDS

NOT SURE WHAT I JUST HEARD

A CAW A SQAWK WHAT COULD IT BE

THE TWEETS SOUND THE SAME TO ME

PERHAPS I SHOULD PUT ON RADIO 3

THE SUN IS VERY BRIGHT OUTSIDE

LOVELY TO GO FOR A WALK OR RIDE

NEITHER AM I SUPPOSED TO DO

SO I’LL STAND OUT SIDE AND LOOK AT VIEW

THURSDAY TODAY SO ITS CLAPPING TIME

ALL OUT TO MAKE LOTS OF NOISE WHICH IS FINE

THIS IS SO GOOD FOR  ALL TO SHARE

A LOVELY WAY TO SHOW YOU CARE

GET OUT OF OUR LIVES YOU NASTY VIRUS

WE HAVE OUR LORD LOOKING AFTER US

WE WILL KEEP PRAYING TILL ITS DONE

THEN WE’LL GO OUT AND HAVE SOME FUN!!!

OFF NOW TO DO RECYCLING

EVEN THAT HAS GOT EXCITING

KEEP SAFE

Here is the seventh Poem from Ann:

SORRY HERE I GO AGAIN!

I HOPE YOU DON’T MIND

IF IT KEEPS ME SANE

SUNSHINE THROUGH THE WINDOW PANE

BETTER CLEAN THEM SOON

BUT NOT ON A SUNNY AFTERNOON

PERHAPS I’LL WAIT TILL IT RAINS

THEN I’LL CHANGE MY MIND AGAIN

FIVE WEEKS ALONE WITH THE SHUTDOWN

IS BEGINNING TO MAKE ME FROWN

WHEN FEDUP BEFORE

I WOULD HEAD OUT THE DOOR

OFF I WOULD GO ON THE BUS

WITH FAMILY OR FRIENDS WITHOUT ANY FUSS

NOW OUT THE DOOR IS ALL I CAN GO

WAVE TO PEOPLE TO SAY HELLO

FAMILY COME TO VISIT ME

WE STAND FAR APART ON THE BALCONY

OH JUST TO BE ABLE TO HAVE A HUG

GO AWAY YOU NASTY VIRUS BUG

KEEP UP THE EXERCISE EVERYONE

THE GREEN GODDESS CAN BE FUN

SOON VIRUS WE WILL BE RID OF YOU

WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE LEADING THE WAY

PLEASE EVERYONE REMEMBER TO PRAY

NOW WHAT I RECOMMEND TO ALL

IS A STREET PARTY OR A BA LL

WHEN WE ARE RELEASED FROM ‘HOUSE ARREST’

START PLANNING NOW TO PASS THE TEST

WE CAN AND WILL WORK TOGETHER

TO MAKE OUR WORLD SAFE FOR EVER AND EVER

AMEN

Fifth Poem from Ann

I THINK IT IS SO SAD

THAT THINGS HAVE GOT SO BAD

WHY CAN’T YOU ALL AGREE

WHAT OUR STRATEGY SHOULD BE

WHEN GOVERNMENT PLANS A MOVE

OPOSITION HAS TO TRY TO PROVE

IT WRONG IN EVERY WAY

STIRRING UP ALL TO HAVE A SAY

PLEASE WHY CAN’T YOU ALL AGREE

DOING OUR JOB, I HEAR THE REPLY

COULD – MIGHT – PROBERLY – SHOULD

WE HEARD AB NAUSEAM DURING BREXIT

PLEASE FORGET DIFFERENCES BETWEEN YOU

WORK TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD OF ALL

REPORT THINGS AS THEY ARE

NOT AS THEY COULD – MIGHT – PROBERLY BE

PEOPLE ARE DYING BY THE THOUSANDS

FAMILIES AND FRIENDS IN MOURNING NEED COMFORT

ALL OVER THE WORLD HELP IS DESPERATELY NEEDED

PLEASE HELP TO DO SOMETHING POSITIVE PLEASE

I HAVE BEEN IN DOORS ONE MONTH NOW

ALL THE BEAUTY I SEE OUT OF MY WINDOWS

I’M SURROUNDED BY LOTS OF GREENERY AND BIRDS SINGING

I PRAY DEAR LORD THAT WE ARE WINNING

THANKYOU SO MUCH TO ALL OF YOU WORKING SO HARD

TO CARE FOR AND HELP HEAL US ALL THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU

Another Poem from Ann:

OH MY GOODNESS  WHAT TO DO

HAVE CLEANED THE BATHROOM AND THE LOO

NOT THAT ANYONE WILL COME TO SEE

MY NICE CLEAN LAVATORY

NOW TO FIND WHAT ELSE TO DO

NOT MUCH ON TV FOR ME TO VIEW

THOUGH I LOVE LIVING HERE

FRIENDS  AND NEIGHBOURS ALL ARE NEAR

I OPEN MY DOOR TO STAND OUTSIDE

AND EVERYONE RUSHES TO HIDE

POETIC LICENSE THAT MIGHT BE

I DO GET A WAVE DOWN THE BALCONY

CLAPPING NIGHT TO LOOK FORWARD TO

MAKE  A LOT OF NOISE IS WHAT WE DO

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE THE WORLD OVER

HAVE DIED BECAUSE OF THE VIRUS CORONA

DEAR LORD IN YOUR MERCY AND GRACE

KEEP US STRONG SO WE CAN FACE

A WHOLE NEW WORLD FOR ALL TO SHARE

AND PROVE TO YOU HOW MUCH WE CARE.

KEEP SAFE

LOVE ANN O’SULLIVAN

This poem is for Easter Sunday

MY PLACE OF REFUGE I CANNOT VISIT YET

IT IS CLOSED DUE TO THE VIRUS THREAT

HOW I MISS PREPARING THE CHURCH FOR SERVICE

AND THE PEOPLE WHO COME TO WORSHIP

WE WORSHIP NOW BY COMPUTER ON ZOOM

SITTING ALONE IN OUR OWN ROOM

EASTER WEEK ALWAYS  FILLED WITH LOTS TO DO

FLOWERS, EASTER GARDEN, AND SUNDAY SCHOOL

NO CREAM EGGS TO GIVE AND SHARE

THIS VIRUS HAS CHANGED ALOT THIS YEAR

OUR SERVICES ON ZOOM WE ARE AS ONE

AS A CHURCH FAMILY WE STILL HAVE FUN

THANK YOU LORD FOR ALL OUR FRIENDS

FRIENDS THAT SUPPORT EACH OTHER TO THE END

WE PRAY FOR OUR WORLD TO GET WHOLE

WE NEED TO SHOW CARE AND LOVE FOR ALL

FOLLOW THE WORD OF OUR FATHER ABOVE

PRAY ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE THAT YOU LOVE

HAPPY SAFE EASTER TO YOU ALL – HAVE FUN

I’LL SEE YOU WHEN THIS IS ALL DONE

(you can leave Easter egg on door step!!!)

This are Poem’s for Easter:

THIS STAYING INDOORS IS BORING INDEED

THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH HOUSEWORK I NEED

I LOOK OUT THE WINDOW AND SEE THE SUN

THIS REALLY IS NOT MUCH FUN

THE TREES ARE IN BUD, BLOSSOM ALL ROUND

HAYFEVER LURKING ANOTHER PROBLEM FOUND

NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD HAVE TO ADMIT

I DO MISS SHOPPING QUIET A BIT

I’M IN CONTACT WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS EVERY DAY

ALWAYS – HOW ARE YOU? IS THE FIRST THING WE SAY

THEN HAVE A MOAN ABOUT BEING IN DOORS ALL THE TIME

KEEPING SAFE IS WHAT WE ARE ASKED TILL ITS FINE

STAY INDOORS IS WHAT WE MUST DO

THAT MEANS EVERYONE INCLUDING YOU

YOU ARE THE ONES WHO THINK IT’S A LARK

TO SUNBATHE AND PICNIC IN OUR PARK

STOP SHOWING DISRESPECT TO ALL THOSE IN THE NHS

AND ALL THOSE WHO RISK ILLNESS WORKING FOR US

WORLD WIDE TO MANY PEOPLE HAVE DIED

PLEASE PRAY WITH ME TO OUR LORD GOD ON HIGH

TO KEEP US ALL SAFE IN HIS CARE AND HIS LOVE

**************************************************************************************************

TWAS IN THE YEAR 2020 ONE DAY

AN UNWANTED VISITOR CAME TO STAY

FROM FAR ACROSS THE SEA A VIRUS CAME

IT STARTED IN CHINA BUT WE MUST NOT BLAME

NOW HAS  SPREAD AROUND THE WHOLE WORLD

STAY IN DOORS IN EVERY COUNTRY IS HEARD

TO PROTECT CARE WORKERS WORKING SO HARD

I WISH PEOPLE WOULD HEED THE WARNING

WE NEED TO PROTECT ALL SO WE CAN WIN

THIS SHUT DOWN WILL GO ON AND ON YOU DO REALISE

CAN’T YOU SEE WHATS BEFORE YOUR EYES

I AM SO SCARED FOR THE WHOLE WORLD DEAR LORD

FOR ME,  FAMILY AND FRIENDS LET YOUR WORD BE HEARD

I PRAY THAT YOUR LOVE AND CARE WILL COME TO ALL

TELL MOHAMMED, BUDDA, RASTSA AND ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS

THAT THE WHOLE WORLD IS SUFFERING AND NEEDS HELP TO MEND

IN THE NAME OF OUR FATHER – AMEN
