Poetry of Childhood


The words that told the tales of teddy bears
A world of magic spells and fairy dreams
That time of love, joy and innocent cares
And nothing appears to be as it seems
Each story scribed on pages of a book
And covers shine as they’re placed on a shelf
The secret home of a pixie or elf
As eager young minds want to take a look
A boy in green, my hero, Peter Pan
And climbing on the wishing chair to fly
There’s nonsense verse to make a rabbit cry
While grinning cats have a different plan
Long lost dreams; they never seem to disburse
The memories found in a childhood verse

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
