" Wash & Brush Up" by Malcolm Chant

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

I stand here watching all alone,

As white swans caress the waters below.

The sun is setting and the skies are red,

The clouds, they grow darker above my head.

A note in my hand, crinkled and torn,

That will be found by tomorrow’s morn.

Again I take another glance,

At those swans as they dance.

A love so beautiful and so pure,

One I hoped I had endured.

But now I stand here alone and sad,

With no one to miss me, for that I’m glad.

Now a breeze does blow,

And I let the paper slip below.

From my fingers I watch it fall,

All my dreams, and love, all and all.

Now the decision I’ll have to make,

Weather to live, or die, at white swan lake.

My Formative years were spent between two wartime airfields, so each night was spent sleeping in shelters, and school was always tense as dogfights were being fought overhead,
We made our own amusement in those days, and presents were second hand wooden toys if any could be found.
My teenage life found me on Motorbikes and fast cars.
My Later life was dogged by peaks and troughs of health problems.
