This Ol’ Town O’ Mine

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well! I’m sharing another poem with you today and I hope you enjoy it!

This Ol’ Town O’ Mine

I never want to leave this place
This little ol’ town o’ mine’
Where concrete merges with greenery
On the bank of the River Tyne

Where the people really enjoy their sports
And there’s wildlife everywhere
And the Geordie calls of ‘whey aye, man!’
Come ringing through the air

There are fields and parks and statues
And there are memorials of the wars
For the many of our townsfolk
Who went off to fight the cause

The town is one of beauty
And the people here are kind
But although we may be friendly
We’re not afraid to speak our mind

I may remain here always
For this town and I are one
And I fear that it may miss me
When the day comes that I’m gone

As always, thank you for reading my words, it really means a lot.

Until next time,
