A love in verse


Performed by

Brentford, old Brentford – means for me

My lifelong home, my angel-nest

My school, my pastime and, what’s best

My own loved portrait gallery

Pictures! And they’re all my Rose

In any room (at certain times)

Oh please see how my spirits xxx

When I see Rose’s lovely poses

Rembrandt couldn’t catch those eyes

Nor Raphael each luscious curve

Titian’s genius would not serve

To paint her hair (and Renoir tries) 

Perfection finds the Masters wanting

Darling Allie’s too enchanting.


An Autumn Walk

Who’s my best companion for

An autumn walk by the canal?

Contented with? Couldn’t be more!...

Wot a Girl

She climbs in the car

Fag in mouth and hair in wind

Fiddles with the door and waves...
