Bolton Abbey, near my home
A SENSE OF LOVE
By Josie Whitehead
Yorkshire’s sounds have won my heart -
Brass bands and bleating sheep -
The rippling streams and waterfalls
That down the moorsides leap.
The taste of Yorkshire’s what I like,
With its local, fresh cuisine -
Its rhubarb and asparagus,
And tasty runner bean.
(They call them stick beans)
Yorkshire’s smells? Oh let me see -
The smell of fish and chips?
The bread, the cheese and don’t forget
The beer to tempt your lips.
It’s the touch of Yorkshire that I like -
The hugs from friendly folk;
The eyes that touch with kindliness;
The mouth that tells the joke.
The sight of Yorkshire’s countryside
Wins far more hearts than mine,
But for me, I’m staying here for sure,
It’s a place that suits me fine!!
