Bar Banter


If a man talks using English words
But his accent's from the north
Can it be said he is speaking Scottish
By the way the words come forth
This was a subject that came up
In my local pub today
The banter between customers and
Staff was a good end to my day
Though my day has ended and
I'll soon be homeward bound
There will be more chats like this
Between the staff and those around.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
