York I

IMGP5949

‘Cross from Clifford’s Tower
On the River Ouse
‘Neath Roman rampart walls of York
Last night I slept and snoozed

There for business meeting
The attraction of this town
Afforded me distraction
Better smile than frown

And there is that here in abundance
With history in spades
So I thought I’d better capture it
Before the memory fades

Photo – Clifford’s Tower – York, UK – by Jempics. (Originally built by William the Conqueror, the runious keep is almost all that remains of York Castle. No-one really knows the origins of the name which first came into use in 1596 but it may have been a reference to the hanging of Roger de Clifford in 1322 on the site).
