Woodgrain

Salford, 22nd June 2020

section of a tree (image: BF Kirkham)

The tree where once this mighty seat now stands

was long gone

They took it to a woodmill

and turned it into chairs

with modern technology

it didn’t take very long

the operatives put them together

like pieces of a jigsaw – aided with an allen key

perfect for picnics

the chairs return on sunny days

where youngsters spend time over sandwiches

counting the rings of the old tree

they now sit upon.
