Gold

You’re precious to all,

Shining in the sunlight,

Magpie’s swoop at the sight of you

whilst Men seek out the places you play hide and seek

Not as hard as Iron your qualities valued up and down the land

formed to create a union Very hard to break

Bumblebees strive to create from the pollen they catch

something similar in the garden that match your wonderful colour

And Athletes meet up at great venues around the blue marble

for a chance that their hard work will have you resting around their necks

Fortune (acrostic)

Fortune

For as long as prospectors keep talking

Oregon’s wagon trail has attracted people far and wide

Round the wild valleys they roam

Trekking around the carved out valleys for

Unforetold riches from the Horde of Coins

Navigating the challenging terrain can be difficult

Enjoy your quest – but expect trouble along the gold scattered route.

Treasure

Treasure

Taken from merchant ships, by

Rascals of the seven seas

Every pirate worth their salty sea legs

Admires the prize of jewels, silver and gold doubloons

Some keep their precious horde hidden

Under tropical sands , deserted shores – only

Revealed many moons later by a younger

Explorer, following the pirates charts and maps

One of a Kind

Original

A tale of a jewel – told in acrostic form

 

Only you have possession of it –

Round the world you went

In search of something so

Great – captain Bones himself would be envious

Innovative, but beautiful – Dazzling to the eye

Never seen before by the jeweller – its unique

And women and men alike

Long to wear it on their hand.

Supercharged

A poetic response to another Golden response from Paralympics GB

(Hannah Cockcroft, winning Gold in Rio)

 

Have you been watching ?

A Magical moment in the Rio lights

New wheels speeding down the track to a Gold

Neutrals and rivals all –

Astounded – The British girl

Has taken it….

Speeding through the competition,

 

(who won the medal then ? answers clear to see!)

 

Golden Moments

In another place, whilst I eat my tea

Our brave athletes are going for victory

flying round tracks and fields of all kind

focused on goals in body and mind

Prepared for the task – with targets in hand

strategies made – and races planned

Zeus watches on as the events unfold

as Britain goes hunting for Bronze, Silver or Gold

And as world meets in Rio to follow the race

The athletes are focused on the first, second, third place

So as flame it burns – give the athletes a cheer

as medals are won and old records – disappear.
