The Nottingham & Beeston

by Jem Croucher

In Nottingham the waters
of the canal are quite tranquil
with new building now reflected
in the waters quiet and still
Iron rings along the towpath
remain in situ there
Yet no more to fasten barges
with slow horses unaware

Those days to passing memory
are I’m afraid resigned
Another age and fashion
to this place are now aligned
In fact the only traffic
in this peaceful place today
is my good self composing
some words along the way
