From Pad To Verse
(A Pot Pourri Of Poems)
By Pat Taylor
The Authoress, born in Bristol – now
living in Staffordshire, describes herself as a cross between Pam Eyres and
Spike Milligan (poetry –wise, not in looks!)
Like Pam, Pat started work at 16 in the Civil Service, but in more recent years has become a Teaching Assistant.
Pat has two 6 foot sons and a loving husband.
She intends staying young forever and growing old disgracefully.
In her own words “Stay young, occasionally act your shoe size and live for today!”
This book is
dedicated to my Husband, Geoff,
my sons, Robert and Matthew
and all those who encouraged
me to write it.
I saw a shooting star
It took me by surprise
A brighter light I've never seen
Blazed across the skies
triggered off so many thoughts
Some happy, some are sad
I remembered the stars that had gone before me
My Mum, my Sister, my Dad
I had another thought as I watched
This celestial gem
Did the Three Wise Men see a similar star
Long ago in Bethlehem?
