Norfolk Road by Dave Makin

The flat, upper floor, faded gentility.

Two residents, just Her and her daughter.

A sanctuary far from `Daily Express` land

and into the free-thinking laughter of Sunday `Observer` land,

occupied by this educated, fliberal, quietly wild woman.

Mid-Fifties, with `Under Milk Wood` and `Songs for Swinging Lovers`.

Boy! Didn`t we just swing and love in those years,

with Her giggling, serving us tea in bed.

The Influence was rich,rewarding and lasting.

It reaches out,still, touching me after these many years.
