Book Extract

East Midlands Soil

Ancestors moved
From a village in Derbyshire
To Nottinghamshire;
From being shoe-makers
To managers.

Two hundred years
Or more
Of sweat and toil;
Of raising families
On East Midlands soil.

Now they travel
Far and wide
And two of the family
Have taken their brides
From Russia.

We have seen an age
Ushered in
Of multi – culturalism
International ties
And the world-wide web.

But still I will tread
On East Midlands soil
And when I am dead
My ashes will be scattered
With ancestors.
