Holmes and Watson go camping

Holmes and Watson go camping

By May Kwek

Holmes and Watson went camping
And in a field they spent the night
Set up their tent, cooked by the fire
And then slept side by side

But then in the middle of the night
Holmes woke Watson with a jab to the side
“What do you see?” he asked as they looked at the sky
“The stars Holmes,” Watson replied

“And what does that tell you?” asked his friend
And Watson bowed his head
Knowing the clever Sherlock Holmes
It had to be something really great

“I see that we’re so small,” he replied
“So insignificant and tiny
And perhaps somewhere in the great universe
There are others just like me”

“On planets that could bear life
And trees that have good fruit
Now Holmes are you impressed?
Aren’t my thoughts good?”

Holmes shook his head slowly
Then sighed and shook his friend
"Watson you idiot!" he cried
"Someone has stolen our tent!"

Evening’s Beginning



Evening’s Beginning

By May Kwek

Have you seen the evening's content?
As the light fades and falls
Things you knew morph their shape
Till you wonder if you knew them at all

A strange darkness descends
Upon the quietening of the air
And with the wind falls like leaves
The burdens of toil and care

And with its quiet comes the peace
Of the darkness of the night
Where what is far cannot be seen
Out of mind once out of sight

For as the sun fades to tomorrow
And the moon comes into view
The day and its troubles are over
But the night, my friends, is new
