Too many years and a day
Whilst in Headingley far away
On the grapevine did I hear, shall we say
A stagecoach arriving in Malton one day
And to bring
Spectacle, happiness, wrapped up with string.
What a scoop for a painter like me
To get there on time and wanting to see
How it was to be travelling in that old fashioned way
By stately coach and rich apparel
Either outside or in
And hand down that trunk he said with a grin.
Was it worth early start to get there on time
To take many photos and enjoy in that place
The horses, that stagecoach,those people
In costumes,the richness of colours, all there to see
Then homewards with memris, and photos, oh lucky me.
