Gillian Sims gave free books to members of her community on Tuesday 23rd October. 2012
The Manners collection was published in 2009.
This book was at the heart of the community on Tuesday where it was first launched at the Chase library three years ago.
Many children will have the pleasure of reading the light-hearted poetry about manners and will engage with the fun characters while they tell their tales.
Photos and books were exchanged in the community,and all were delighted to receive the books.

The flower was planted with the care it needed The feelings were there to want it to bloom It was cared for with the love that it deserved Food, water, love, it was even given room. Over time something happened that caused neglect Whether stress or pressures, it wasn’t clear But the […]
He who is past his prime Feels his life has ceased to rhyme Sees his future a steep climb Never dares to get off the dime Too afraid to walk on the slime Frozen as if mantled with a rime Does nothing but blame it on time He who is in his heyday Has no […]

Merkel was no turtle With her bright orange paint All she had was an engine And a loop for a frame No brakes to stop her Has she flew down the track At 74 miles per hour Wow that was fast Sadly in 1915 the Merkel flew no more Because production came to an end It was […]

Reblogged from Violet Nesdoly / poems: Back “Writing a poem…is a kind of possible love affair between something like the heart (that courageous but also shy factory of emotion) and the learned skills of the conscious mind.” Mary Oliver Poetry, I’m back and sorry I missed our rendezvous all these May mornings forsook you for […]
