National Poetry Day

National Poetry Day

Back from London

King Cross is busy, as it always will be but

I can see the orange and black___

Of the Grand Central calling at Brighouse,

Not long before I get back.

Teacups rattling, across the points.

Up North, the weathers cold.

The staff understand and pour the tea

Hot liquid gold.

Here we are at Brighouse now,

It’s the flowers that set it apart.

London’s super to visit,

But Yorkshire’s here – in my heart.

Susan Thorpe.

Brighouse Station Ambassador

A huge thanks to our very talented station volunteer Susan, for sharing this poem to celebrate National Poetry Day!
