A town rebuilt and modernised,

on the footprints of past family ties.

Yet what still remains, we cling onto,

as old and new with us, easily, lies.

 

Important landmarks still recognisable,

like the church where they buried their dead,

and the milestone going forward,

where later we all were wed.

 

The gardens and the grand monuments,

unchanged and welcoming still.

Warm memories ongoing from yesterday,

when we climbed up yonder hill.

 

Each district having it’s own characters,

and where people walked for miles,

along cobbled streets and canal paths;

irony bringing forth many a smile.

 

No hardship ever worth worrying about;

everyone being in the same boat.

No competitive edge or boastfulness;

no-one impressed by them’ as did gloat!

 

Just a hard working town, and still,

as welcoming as anywhere on earth.

Where folks just get on with life,

whilst embracing it’s new re-birth.
