Your Poem.

THE OLD NEIGHBOURHOODS As I surf through the sites on Facebook I notice how often we love to dwell on past times Sepia photos pop up, especially the old neighbourhoods Arguments rage on, the shop on the corner, was it the fruit and veg Before it became our chippy? Each community had its own schools, churches, youth clubs and picture houses Tenement homes created cherished neighbours Always there for one another, especially in tough times There was an abundance of local pubs, too In fact one on every corner Looking back life seemed so Uncomplicated then for us kids Until the demise of tenement living began Neighbours left in their droves for pastures new feet may have walked away from the old neighbourhoods Yet hearts never do, they store life's treasured memories of youth Spent in and around the tenements of our city in the old neighbourhoods by Margaret Donnelly,
