A Posy, A Poem and A Painting

30 Jul

What a special visit with our lovely 104 year old friend. This is the garden posy we took for her today.

We had been directed to a very special booklet, of poems written by T’s father, J A Nickinson, in 1944. Each poem is a delightful evocation of the time and tells a story that touches one’s heart. I have permission to share this poem, ‘Thompson’,  and, later, the beautiful water colour that accompanies it.  This narrative poem, for a cat lover, is a particular treat, full of the observations that any cat person will recognise.
