Andrew, you're quite right about that first stanza in The Road North in the York anthology - it is indeed about the summer of 1976. Coincidentally, Sid Villan mentioned that same summer last night in connection with one of his poems, called Crickets.

Down in flames like the R101, hey, John? Sorry I missed it.

What ho, AB!
I did "Whinge and Fucking Bleat" at Speakers Corner on Wednesday. It went down like a lead zeppelin.

Thank you for your comment, Robert. Unfortunately, I don't think Ella ever lived to see this poem, but she was quite convinced I'd been at those dances with her!

Andrew,
I like the tribute to Ella and her memories a great deal. I can imagine the dancehall, the rose scented perfumes and the smell of brylcreem and floor polish. I suspect she was delighted too.

Never waste One-2-3-4 on a poem. Use it for a foxtrot.

Hello Andrew - welcome to WOL. Hope you enjoy being part of WOL - and find it productive too! Hope to see some of your work on the blog section of the site. Stuff gets more attention there than on the profiles.
