Wreckers Cottage

A couple of Christmas’s ago my family and I went to stay in a cottage for the holiday, it was at Sea Palling Norfolk coast. In a wreckers cottage we had a lovely time there. This cottage was used to keep bounty found on the ships or robbed by pirates

Wreckers Cottage

Wreckers cottage lies on the coast

there for Christmas I had a toast

toast for breakfast

toast of champagne

again and again

it was a festive fill

really brill

with my family all together

amid the stormy Norfolk weather

Norfolk Sea Palling there it is

dont get in a tis

you will find it there

but beware

a pirates hideout it used to be

as they used to take their booty there

and now it is empty all deserted too

its a holiday let for a week or two

the secret room all hidden away

is still there to this very day

the ghosts are there it is very true

its shivery and what a hue

you hear them whilst you try to sleep

so dont peep

walking round

they do abound

because if look you do

they will say more than just boo

they will scare you to death once more

as they come drifting through the door

looking for the things they have left behind

do you mind

I dont think you will

it could give you a thrill

in the dark

in the wind

in the cold

the sand dunes blowing in the cold breeze

so whilst you sleep

in slumbers still

the wreckers will come and take their fill

they are but ghosts

you cannot see

they are invisible to you and me

but the cold blast of spooky air

will make you jump up and stare

and your hair

well it will stand on end

and you will not be able to defend

yourself as these ghostly spirits to appear

and steal from you what is precious and dear

so when the mists have all gone to sea

and a Christmas celebration is there for you and me

no one knew these wreckers were here

but perhaps a stranger or someone dear

will let you know the true intent

as a lovely time was spent

in Wreckers cottage to be true

I would highly recommend to you

a holiday haunt to take a break

but be careful not to wake

The ghostly pirates will never leave there

so meet them if you really dare

give them your booty to be sure

and dont forget to close the door

as you leave it is so quiet now

I really dont see how

this peaceful haunt could hold such treachery!!!

arghhhhh! There’s a ghost in the house!

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at https://rosypoems.com
