May Poems, No. 1 2020.

Words v Actions

Sometimes words

are not enough.

Actions must follow

the, however well-

intentioned words.

Gestures must be

made with feeling,

flowers, jewellery or

some such pretty thing.

Words can be mis-

heard or misunderstood.

So actions must not

be open to interpretation.

You must be decisive.

Set your goal and then

achieve it. No shilly –

shallying, faint heart

never did win fair lady!
