Ghost Concerto for a Spring that Was

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A branch of May:
a memory
of how at age five I ran
across Penny Lane
railway bridge,
a crayoned Union Jack
flapping in my hand.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 1953: Coronation Year!
In class at Dovedale Primary I received
a mug with the young Queen’s portrait

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 and a Fairy Delta
glinted high
above our damp schoolyard
–we broke off
our game of toddler football
to watch it pass over Liverpool.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Christopher T. George
