IWSG:

WELCOME TO OCTOBER:
EXCITEMENT, TENACITY AND HARD WORK:
This month I will tell you my aim,
My fourth poetry book I hope to write.
It will give me something to do,
During the coming of long dark nights.

It will also take my mind off problems
That for so long have plauged my life.
Family, health and a bad relationship
Have for so long brought tears and strife.

As you may recall in this year's A to Z,
My theme was titles of songs,
It went reasonably well,
I saw nothing wrong.

My new book will be that theme,
But only song titles sung by Danny Boy.
I have contacted his management in Dublin
They gave me their blessing and said reading
The finished book would be a joy..

I have fifty songs selected,
Now I have to write fifty poems to match.
But there is no deaadline
So can write at my leisure in my own little patch.

I am extremely excited about this,
But tenacity and hard work is a must.
To achieve a good standard,
I'm positive I can do this and in myself I trust.

Hope you all have a good month and Halloween.
