Emily Bronte

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Emily Bronte didn’t play football
Not for Leeds Utd, Bradford City
Or even a Haworth XI
She didn’t fly down the wing
Spraying passes to Branwell
Charlotte and Anne
She didn’t tackle anything other than
Metaphors and syntax
And collected heather from the moors
Not inch perfect crosses
And tho’ Heathcliffe came from Liverpool
His passion was for a Yorkshire lass
Not a leather ball.


Parry Maguire (2004)

(Emily Bronte born 30th July 1818 Thornton West Yorks)

Happy Birthday Emily, never forgotten always remembered.
