No-Doo-Bee-Days

Doo-bee, doo-bee, doo-bee, doo-ways –
You’ve just gotta love them no-doo-bee days.
No grind and no sweat; no work set to do,
Nobody to please; nobody but you.

Do nothing on benches of sun-dappled shade,
Do nothing in cafes with fresh lemonade.
On beds and on sofas, with books and TV –
No-do days are dandy; what’s more, they are free.

No cook and no clean; no list of to-dos,
No drop and no fetch; no guilt in a snooze.
Doo-bee, doo-bee, doo-bee, doo-ways –
You’ve just gotta love them no-doo-bee days.

Seize the Day: Favourite Inspirational Poems

This creative collection, now in its 3rd edition, brings together favourite inspirational poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology takes us on a journey through the peaks and troughs of life, celebrating the indomitable human spirit.. It includes many old favourites like “Poets Must Be” and “Chasing the Blue”, as well as brand new poems like “The Writer” and “Making Ripples”. Sages through the ages wisely say: / Carpe Diem – seize the dawning day / Oh, would that I could assuage that thirst / But the day conspires to seize me first! / With the hurry and scurry / Of home’s frantic flurry / And the hustle and bustle / Of work’s tangled tussle. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
