Here’s a little doodle I did

Some thirty years ago

To give an impression of

That time of life in York when

Even the pace was slow.

Then like paintings I used to do

Some thirty years gone cold

Those so interesting buildings


To come from sources old.

But inspiration taken from

How buildings do look now

A personal visit to be made

To take from what those buildings are

What they might, only might have been.

And then the scene on that same street

Where all manner of folk might meet

A completely different sight might be

Created from scratch by me in place

Of what originally there was to see.

With appreciation to that unknown photographer who took that original excellent image which I so modified.
