The Singers


From every hamlet through the Fens they’d come,


The young, the not-so-young, the short, the tall,


All drawn by sound of keyboard, fiddle, drum,


To bring their warmth to warm the cold church hall.


One night in seven they sang their several parts


Round well-known songs they first loved years before –


To make a sound to soften the hardest of hearts,


With such a spirit that none could ever feel poor!


But then the Piper went away betimes


Beyond the reach of all these Fenland folk


To find his fame (with luck) in sunnier climes


Once more, the hall an empty shell – no joke!


What’s lost, can Fenland’s richness now restore,


 And songs of love and laughter sound once more?

Please give some feedback on this blog:

This is great, you should find a publisher!

I enjoyed this, and it has made me think anew about something. The style's good.

It's stylistically OK, but don't give up the day job!

It needs quite a bit of work, and I think you should probably stick to engineering!

It was a waste of my time to read this rubbish. Don't waste your time writing it!
