|MICHAEL DUNDROW: THE BARDS #19|
Like the traditional Cornish tea and scone partaken at the old village hall along the coastal path, this sheet of poems may whet the appetite for the larger repast later.
Readers wanting more, presumably of the same, can now order 3 of the Penzance-based poet's previous publications dating from 1986, 1997 and 2003 in what appears to be something of a clearout sale at the bargain price of seven pounds post paid.
One of the offerings on view is ROADSIDE APPEAL a poem of 3 verses:
A little table by the roadside With daffodils bunched in bright display, Appealing to the Sunday driver, Please stop a moment on your way. No need to cut the busy engine, Just pause to wind the window down And for a price you'll hardly notice Take golden treasure back to townAll well and good so far, you might think. But perhaps it should have ended there. Like a second or third scone with its strawberry jam and portion of fresh Cornish cream filling it's perhaps in the end a bite too far.
The grower's smile will show his pleasure Both for the city cash he needs to live And for the shared appreciation His and the flowers' efforts give.
