Real Life

I’m still reading ‘Salford Road’ by Gareth Owen and thought I’d add a further one of his poems. Real Life fits in with my previous blog about the summer holidays and made me smile.

‘Yes’ thought John

his eyes gleaming with excitement

As he looked round the ancient inn

on the edge of the moors

that was connected tootherwise inaccesible St Peter’s Cove

which had once been a haunt of smugglers

by a secret underground passageway

from his bedroom

And which his strange Aunt Lucy

had rented to his mother and father

and Uncle David for

the whole summer holidays.

‘Yes, this looks just the sort of

place for an adventure but

that kind of thing

only happens in books.’

And he was right.
