Rondeau Redouble for 2012

 

Rondeau Redouble for 2012

 

Time’s like a beating heart or blinking eye

Minutes become weeks, seconds become days

Hearts take a quantum leap the way time flies

Warm rays of sun amidst cool falling rain

 

Lets dig and delve through 2012 today

Reflect on this great year be filled with pride

As games and flames and names slow fade away

Time’s like a beating heart or blinking eye

 

See Nicola and Jess beam golden smiles

Watch Weir & Wiggins winning wheeling ways

Mo in slow motion bring the past alive

Minutes become weeks, seconds become days

 

The Arab spring Obama and Plebgate

Betty, Bond and Felix fell from the sky

Slow resurrections down on white hart lane

Hearts take a quantum leap the way time flies

 

Jubilee Celebrations drenched with pride

60 years 24 hours a day

The toughest job but on this woman strives

Warm rays of sun amidst cool falling rain

 

Less we forget lost loved ones passing lives

Those who toil to keep the innocent safe

For those who work through tragedy and smile

They are the pulse that keeps this nation great

Like a beating heart

  1. Love the poem ‘Rondeau Redouble for 2012’ and great to see
    it read in the final minutes of BBC Breakfast Time….hopefully it
    will enthuse others with an understanding of poetry. Thanks Mike –
    it has helped me start the last day of the year with a
    smile

  2. Saw and heard you this morning on BBC Breakfast – had just written my own reflections on 2012 (not in rhyme!) and thought your poem was amazing. V. humble of you to say it’s your job – how great to have a job you enjoy.
