i began this tribute to Gil Scott-Heron on sunday afternoon, after hearing the sad news of his death on saturday
Gil Scott-Heron - the revelution will not be televised
and other youtube videos
created by Glen Byford, completed on May 31st
When I was a boy we had a chestnut fence
like this at home, with a vacant plot of land
the other side dad and the old boy over the
back of us grow vegetables also kept ducks,
geese, turkeys, and the best of all we had a
camp to play in.
The field is now built on.
This is me and my sister on our trolly
in the field and dads car a Austin Ruby
As I pushed my way through the thick over hanging Rhododendrons,
out of the corner of my eye, in the twilight of the warm spring evening, I caught
a glimpse of a large silvery white lustrous butterfly.
Then as I looked again and with disappointment realized, it had never been
anything more than two beautiful leaves.
A tranquil spot to stop and reflect,
The Immaculate Conception and St Joseph,
It’s a Roman Catholic church, and is open to walk
around,something I acationly do if in the town.
I’m not particularly religious, but it gives me time to
remember my departed mum and dad.
