Love Suspended

Poem By Elizabeth Atkinson

Recently we met, by chance,
And I was reminded of the past. You told me you regretted
That time had gone so fast.
You wished that we had tied the knot
And could we get together at last. I gently pointed out to you
That you had missed your chances.
There had certainly been a number of times
when you could have made advances. But in those days your secret love Had been your Triumph Twin*
And in those thrilling, speeding days I was the ornamental trim. You asked if I would telephone
To talk of when and where,
But too many obstacles cloud the scene
And with regret - I left you - there. * a motor-bike

Childhood Impressions - Aged Six

Where have you gone to brother dear?
It seems so sad without you here. Mother, dad and sisters two
Act so strange. They're missing you. Soft I peep with shy delight
At baby brought for Christmas night

Dancing Bells

First I saw them through the trees
And knew that I should bend my knees
At such a sight, before unseen,
Of bells a'dancing near the stream,
