Divine Pleasures

The Poets' Garret

The Poets’ Garret


The chime that travels in to yesterday
An echo of youth now so distant
When the heat of summer meant endless fun
Responsibility non-existent
When all we had to do was run and play
The bells of sweet coolness would call out
As it melted on the pale wafer cone
Divine the pleasures before we were grown
And found what this life would soon be about
With working long hours without any slack
A breath becomes political debate
And the old dreams of youth seem distant friends
Let the bells ring out before it’s too late
As ice cream cones take the mind gently back

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.
