Pilgrim’s Progress

by Jem Croucher

Found a copy of the ‘Progress’
it was just three ninety-nine
from the Oxfam shop in Worthing
thought, ‘I’d like that to be mine’

So I gave the lady waiting
the price there on the back
and took the volume home with me
to place on my bookrack

It will now have a pride of place
though first I’ll have a read
of those familiar chapters
many times my mind has freed

Bunyan’s ‘Pilgrim’s Progress’
one of the very best
of which I’ve several copies
this new one and the rest

Long has it been a favourite
and one read many times
but still a joy to read again
those loved familiar lines

So I’m rather pleased I found it
and took it home with me
as it now becomes a treasure
with the others naturally
