Poems of William Stevenson

1. Back and Side go Bare 1/1/2004
2. Jolly Good Ale and Old 1/3/2003

Back and Side go Bare

Back and side go bare, go bare,
Both foot and hand go cold;
But, belly, God send thee good ale enough,
Whether it be new or old.

I cannot eat but little meat,
My stomach is not good;
But sure I think that I can drink
With him that wears a hood.

[Hata Bildir]
