Poetry by Eva Askham- Spencer
Meet some people
do some good
angels guide you from up above
Castle Gloom (2021)
There was a young man in Dollar
he lived in such terrible squalor
a castle called Gloom
it was an old tomb
there was an old man in Dollar
Life is like a river
rapids, meanders, shallows, pools
we never know where it will take us
we set sail
the infinite sea awaits us all
enjoy the adventure
life is a journey
a gift for us all
Perfect Love (2021)
Perfect love is what you are
eternal love, eternal stars
a thousand sun beam
a force for good
a flock of angels from high above
The Ochils (2021)
Rising up above the town
the Ochils stand in shades of brown
rolling hills and whittled glens
full of life and little wrens
adventures waiting its time to go..
the summit's dusted in glistening snow
Life is a journey
Life is a journey
How far will you go?
What will you see?
What will you sow?
Life is for living, For/giving, for letting go
This is the truth this much I know.
A Time for Peace
Why is peace a dream long gone?
Why do wars go on and on?
Learn the truth and shine the light
There's no such thing as a glorious fight
Wars are folly, wars aren't free
Trauma passes genetically
Stop the madness, stop the sales
Of guns and bombs and belts with nails
A world of peace is not a dream
It's a lot more simple than it may seem.
No food, No phone, No job, No home
I want to work but jobs are few
Tell me please what should I do?
Rent is high - Hope is low
The status quo is BLOW, BLOW, BLOW
Tell me why this has to be
When UBI would set us free?
I know you hear me
Please hear this plea
UBI will set us free
Reconsider and make it so
UBI will help us grow.
Salina Bay - 2012
Gentle lapping of the waves
Slowly sunlight dips away
Moonlit night and stars beyond
Happy memories of which I'm fond.
The hearts of horses are wild and free
That's how life is meant to be
Growing, learning, wandering free
It can be so for you for me.
