    Thank you for this beautiful piece of your life. Feeling the same about my youth in a very different place and circumstance,you have inspired me to write about my feelings.
    Is the slight change in your accent one I would hear in Bradford?

    Your poetry makes even sedge sound like something painterly. I was in tears, and then you rescued with the Lully and those GORGEOUS images. (I guess we all have a T'Old Field, tho some are far less deserving…)

    Yes – that's a light touch of the sound of authentic Bradford. Thankyou both for your valued appreciation. Touched. EP

    A lovely poem and a lovely place (although I don't know how anyone can look at the scenery and think about anything but drinks with little umbrellas in them). I loved the contrast of the words, with a little bit of wilderness hewn out of the city, and the beauty of the Riveria. Nicely done.

    Heart rending, evocative but unsentimental – coming from South Yorkshire my 't'owd' field has long disappeared under concrete but it's memory is still strong. Is there any chance of this piece appearing in text form please?

    It was Kathleen's idea to do this poem in the Antibes setting. So pleased it seems to have worked. The poem is in the book, but I will post it too. EP
