The terrace at No 3

A descriptive piece on a building in Lark Hill Place, at Salford’s Museum and Art Gallery.

Old building by Cobbles

with Oak table and chairs,

Copper Kettle boils on stove

near to the stairs.

Fruit from the grocers,

is cut up and cored

ready for the pie crust

in the oven its stored.

Washboard and Dolly tub

in the back yard they’re hooked

ready for the washing

that’s been overlooked

And when they are rinsed out

and gleaming with pride

they’ll dry on a washing line

on pegs hanging outside

And on the Oak table

the porcelain that’s the best

as the family that lives here

is having a guest.

Lark Hill Place

Bear, by brian f kirkham

Bear sits

Under his tree.

Yes, its time for tea.

The bees work by day and by night

Making

Delicious, Delightful, Honey

And he will enjoy the

Wonderful treat

Up high

Prepared by the finest hands

Allied with flavours of the region

Succent Tomatoes, mix with the finest herbs and mozzarella

To create a sensation fit for any Italian town

And Ham, Salami and Olives enhance the taste

Bakewell

Brought to the fore by that Derbyshire town

Almonds in abundance in that wonderful spongey tart

Kept in the bakers front window

Everyone appreciates its fullsome flavour

When its brought out at afternoon tea

Each slice full of almonds and

Lashings of raspberry jam and topped with a

Layer of tasty icing

Mosaic

Made in Grecian lands, many years ago

Ordered Tessellations form pictures on the floor

Square tiles of differing colour

Anchored in time to the ground

Inspired by tales of heroes and

Crafted by true artisans

A Short Piece on Clocks

Container of time

Locking tumblers and cogs

Over days months and years

Cover the movement of hands – hear them tick!

Keeping watch for Father Time as

Sand passes through his timer

An Acrostic to begin

Compass

By Brian F Kirkham

Crafted with Care to

Orientate the vast

Map of the known world

Passing through

All lands nearby –

Seven continents await as do the

Seven stormy seas
