I think I Won’t Go Home Just Yet

I think I won’t go home just yet

1-train

I’ll jump a train

to the ocean shore

2-beach

Sit on the beach,

sleep and snore

3-gull

Awake to the cry

of a seagull mum

calling her baby

to journey on

4-night-sail

Ride a ship

on a moonlit night

ocean breeze

better wrap up tight

5-night-cu

As water laps

against the stern

rhythmic sounds

sing and yearn

let’s go.

itiw-lets-go-1

I think I won’t go home just yet

6-loch-ness

I’ll catch a plane

to the Loch Ness bog

7-nellie

And see if Nellie’s

fish or log

8-scotish-pine

And stand among

the Scottish pine

lose myself

in thought and time

9-english-moor

Hop the isles

to the English Moor

10-lore2

Listen to some

Gothic lore –

ghostly tales

of wand and wane

11-home2

Make me wish

for home again.

  1. Reading this illustrated story put me in a very relaxed state. I felt pleasantly removed from my surroundings. I like the lines ” Awake to the cry of a seagull mum calling her baby to journey on”. The illustrations look better here than the originals. I think the ‘the’ in “the ghostly tales….” should be capitalized because it starts a new sentence.

    Nice work!
