Neighbours ©

Neighbours are, those next door,

Above, below, on different floor.

Nosey or noisy, unkempt or tidy –

Just like us.


Dawn and dusk a common sight,

Often scraping off the ice,

A knowing nod, gentle wave,

Neighbourly way, to behave.


To meet and greet, see and care

Now and then, gossip to share.

A place to go when in a muddle,

Friendly face, when one’s in trouble.


But, After all is said and done

Neighbours are not just for fun

Security and safety net,

Help live our lives with respect.
