“As good things go, he went”

09Jun10

A day of poetry.

Five years ago a certain Mr Hovis Presley left the building.

The winter’s cold
The blanket’s hot
The wind’s getting up
But I’m not
Now is the winter of my quite content.

If Mr Presley’s name is not familiar to you then I’d suggest you purchase a copy of his wonderful wonderful book Poetic off Licence and have a listen to this radio documentary presented by a friend of Hovis, Mr Mark Radcliffe, and available via the excellent speechification website.

And now we’re off to see Simon Armitage. [Who I can report was just great.]
