The River Mersey

8 Nov

The River Mersey

Was my childhood River.

I would ferry on

Royal Daffodil

To visit places

Far afield

Like Birkenhead,

Or even farther

On the bigger ships

To Ireland for a holiday.

While seagulls

Whooped and swooped,

The wind would take

My breath away.

I’d stand on deck

to watch the foamy churn

And anxious Liver Birds

Awaiting my return.
