Poetry Pleases: They Meet In The Library At Two

They meet in the library at two, ladies with a spare hour or two - and please bring a nice man, says Bessie Woolrich's poem. Enid Turner comes right back with another poem, telling Bessie where those nice men are.

They meet in the library at two,
These ladies with a spare hour or two.
Do they dance, do they sing?
Oh not on your Nelly”
They’ve only come out as a change from the telly.

They meet in the library at two
To learn a new hobby or pastime to pursue,
Some walkers, many talkers,
Of moaners and groaners very few.

They meet in the library at two
To decide what next they should do.
The eggheads play Scrabble;
I hear they’re quite good,
Whilst the diners go out for sticky toffee pud.

They meet in the library at two
For friendship, music, a cuppa, a biscuit or two.
So come if you can,
And please bring a nice man
To meet them in the library at two!


They Don’t Come to the Library at Two by Enid Turner

Deer Bessie, do you know what they do,
Those nice men who don’t come at two?
They’re out playing some golf;
It’s healthy you know
To stroll round the course with friend Joe.

Or away from the library at two,
Oh, if you only knew.
The local club beckons;
It’s tempting to go
For a quick jar of the best with friend Joe.

While you’re in the library at two,
Unaware of what these men do,
Innocent of such guile,
Perhaps you should show
How your company to life lends a glow.

Perhaps then in the library at two
There’ll be at least a few
Of those nice men you need.
But do be aware
That you’ll all have to be ready to share!
