Liverpool Skyline

Liverpool skyline
Five thirty A.M.
and I’m in a hotel
on my travels again
Radio City at St Johns
lights up the sky
up there just off Lime Street
ever so high
And it’s peaceful up here
with the lights all aglow
with the Liverpool skyline
to start a day slow

Homeward Bound

As stations go, the Lime Street one
here in Liverpool
is rather nice and will I’m sure
make some people drool
Architects and engineers and
railway history buffs
Will, weak of knee, pontificate
about minutiae stuff

But for most its hallowed arches
and Victorian splendour will
be lost within the purpose
that its innards do fulfil
As, like me on this cold morning
a train inside is found
with the sole and special purpose
to take me homeward bound

A day with the fab four

Screen Shot 2016-02-25 at 23.14.48

For a moment today I went back in time
and stood with four Liverpool chaps
John, Paul, George and Ringo too
whilst tourists around me took snaps

Later on I met Eleanor Rigby
In a street as she sat all alone
Cast in bronze for all time by Tommy Steele
on a bench not of wood but of stone

Then down in the dark Cavern Quarter
I paused for a while by a door
and took a picture of the original entrance
once frequented by the famous fab four

But then it was time to leave sixty three
and come back to twenty sixteen
departing Merseyside history
where today for a while I have been

Liverpool green

In the streets the Fab Four made famous
I came on St Patrick’s day
Green and revelry all around
Great views across the way

The Ship and Mitre for some beers
Great company and good chats
Then a venture into Liverpool
With Irishmen in hats

There was singing in the streets and pubs
and Guinness flowing free
The Emerald Isle, its presence here
on Merseyside with me
