A - Z APRIL 2013 - P

(Amber’s best friend since Primary School)

Pauline closed down her laptop and plugged in her iPod
She listened to country artists and was thought to be odd
As well as reading the classics and talking like a dictionary
Mathematically challenged neither could she be called arty
From an early age Amber had taken her under her wing
Shown her how to study, enjoy life and find time for laughing
She loved being round Amber’s house
Where she didn’t have to be  as quiet as a mouse
Because her parents worked from home every day
There was no leeway for any type of horseplay.
She moved from her desk and bounded on to her bed
Her turn would come Amber had said
She didn't want to go out with a blockhead
She started to daydream about a boyfriend to cuddle
She checked the book titles on her index on the Kindle.
She would lose herself in one the great romantic fictions
Not Dickens, she was in the mood for an Austen.


  1. This poem reminds me of a high school friend. Anne was always the smart QUIET one in junior high until one summer she made up her mind she didn't want to be that quiet girl. In high school she became outgoing and FUN. She became a cheerleader and was one of the most popular girls in school.

  2. Austen! She has good taste—although Dickens is very good, too. :)

  3. Austen's the way to go if you want a bit of romance!

  4. Fabulous Sally, I loved it, a good romantic fiction will always take me to a happy place.

  5. Very cute. She will do great things reading stories like those. :)

  6. I definitely would've gone with Dickens, but that's just me!
