Heart of Stockport II


Stockport town is upside down


Blue skies, regret for the river that was

I caught your cobble-stones with conviction

Voices from the youth skimming across the waters


Love is underfoot, under wet sand


Throw stones at the past; take care of the present; enjoy a future.


Red streaks blurring wistful meanderings

Lose yourself in the labyrinthine city

Hidden Source

Here meet the rivers.

Goyt and Tame entwine

like destined lovers.


Here beneath

classless sixties concrete

the Mersey rises.


No one sees

this source of songs,


life itself.


We hid the source

and gave our river

to the scousers.
