Default Poem: Drawing a House

Can anyone remember a poem of mine called Drawing a House'?

It contained these lines;

And on the roof a chimney high
Where smoke goes doodling to the sky

I know I wrote it but I cant find it.

Jayne told you how to search for lost poems, John. Can you find her instructions?

Thank you very much both of you. I have entered it, with necessary emendations, for the latest Oldie Comp called 'The Window' which you will know about when Jayne gets round to posting it.

16 lines, you know.

Dammit, John! You mean Jayne gives you a head start? ("Only joking", Jayne.)

Oo-er... am I late with The Oldie results and the next comp???

Profuse apologies if that's the case... the magazine hasn't popped through my letterbox...

I'll have to ring them and see what's happened to my latest copy as I'm a subscriber, and pop into Waitrose to see if I can pick one up there.

If it is ever found I would love to read it John. I find the title and the remembered lines intriguing. Please lead me to it...

I'm going to The Oldie lunch in London tomorrow, so I'll pick up the latest magazine there (mine still hasn't arrived and I haven't had time to go looking for one).
