Show Me.

Show me the cobbles of old English streets
And I'll tell you of hard work and toil
Show me a farmhouse all decked out in white
And I'll tell you of sweat mixed with soil
Show me the black stuff from out of the ground
And I'll tell you of blood from their chests
Our Heritage built on the backs of strong men
Not top hats and tails, but string vests.

More of your great work, it almost moves me to tears. You say the things which I wish I had the skill to say in such beauty. Have you had an anthology printed Graham?
O I am not a stalker for a printing press, (how horrible that I should even have to say that, but that is mankind I'm afraid.)
If there is a book of your poems available I would love to know about it.
