Rule of thumb:
♠ = Quotations (attributed or unknown);
♣ = Trivia, Ephemera, People's ramblings;
♥ = Winnie's ramblings.
Whimsy is dynamic i.e. like a woman's mind, ever-changing.

Alphabetical list of Winnie's selected poems:
A poetry reading. Now there's a thing Alex's 'B' words Bells, pealing outside my window Blackbird sings in the dark: fills my heart Carey was an only child Drying imbetween my toes D'you remember Every band began with 'The' Fireflies dancing in the evening sunglow Frost twinkles on the slumbering cars Hark, I hear the bells of Westgate He struts the stage his early laughter sounding like a chicken How to describe this feeling I am not a victim I am not an axe-murderer I can't decline one Latin verb I didn't put the cat out I do not like Stevie Smith I do not sense the pain that Nature feels I have a book I live in a tip I love you because... I met a girl from Nottingham I pour myself a cocoa I read a book when I was small I wanted to write a flowery line I was born in the Year of the Snake I write to people, in poetry I wrote a poem (short) last night I, am a piece of the future If time would whisk a life away I'm always the one behind I'm looking for my family I'm standing in the corner I'm staring in the mirror In the well, the voices are calling It stands alone out there I've got a bear, a yellow growly bear Loneliness is 'Look on the Web', I'm told everywhere Love, You are the dawning of my life Lucky the lazy lump Oh! beautiful! Once, I was my father's daughter p.s. Perhaps I ought to write Point at the sky Polyanna - playing in the long grass Queue for cucumbers, today See, if it were another day Sitting on the present Snail on a hill-top Stuart's got a hamster Tell me a tale, Pandora The day the Fire Brigade came out The North Downs over Folkestone The rebel moon looks down The Road is long The sun has gone The trees sleep tonight The White Hill is a monster Then~ she was a dancer, echo to life's curios There is a hill above a market town There's nothing on the telly They are hacking people to pieces in Slough Turn, turn, on the spiral of life Visions of Bluebells on a Spring Afternoon Wandering the meadows of distant memory We are the older women We couldn't wander on the plain We were sitting watching 'Psycho' what's the plural of 'haiku' When first we moved in here we planted a tree where to hire a party clown You are gazing You can't complain You look ...... but you do not see
did you miss me?
