Black and white movies on television

Cream Crackers and cheese on the side

Hot cup of tea and comfortable slippers

Somewhere to curl up and hide

Lose myself somewhere in a bygone age

When charm was a prerequisite

When men raised their hats and opened doors

And on buses and trains gave their seats

Away from the harshness of everyday life

Escaping for the moment at least

Comfortable moments all to myself

And lost in a visual feast.
