I have been trying to find a copy of a framed poem my grandfather passed down to my dad after he died. It used to hang in their living room and I used to love reading it. Somehow down the years it has got lost. Sad I would love to have a copy of it. Wave

Will this do? This is from a metal plaque. If you have difficulty reading the words, I can print and repost. Cheers

A Poem of Coventry which I wrote to share with you before I go again smile, you can erase it if you like, if it's not apt.
City walls that stood so fast, Our True Blue is here to last, The gates of Coventry are still here, Like we the people have no fear. Spinners, weavers of our town, Raised us up never let us down. Ribbons, watches for use and time, In detail worked oh so fine. Three charters for our free trade, Our True Blue does never fade, Cycles, painters, dyers, drapers, tiles wool and glass, Shows this town is here to last. Cars and tools made by machine and hand, Bought by others through out the land, The town has always run its course, From Godiva riding naked on her horse.

I think that's a lovely way to sum up our city in a nutshell over the last few centuries, thank you Morgana. Thumbs up And it shows how Coventry keeps plodding on despite the ups and downs! Long may it continue.

Like the Pheonix Rob the fire burns brightly then fades for a time then rises again the emblem of our city, glad you liked it thanks.

While sitting in my garden, when looking all around, I spy a little beetle run across the ground, Blossoms that caress the trees, showing off their dress, I can hear the blackbird sing, it's nature at its best, The worm that turns the earth so fine, the hoverfly with wings, The perfume from flowers and shrubs, the song thrush that doth sing. A ladybird a gardener's friend, as she eats the pests away, She's sitting there upon the leaves, on a bright and sunny day, The busy bee from flower to flower, collecting to make honey, Leaves then fall upon the ground, a hedgehog cute and funny, The snow has come it's Christmas time, mother nature she has made, But not all is lost, I can see a robin on my spade.
