with me, friends, I’ll show you
David M Harris MA
City of a thousand years
From Anglo-Saxon, Cofa’s tree
Convent centrally appears.
Godiva, beneath three lordly spires
Bared to banish that hated tax
As poets recall, Mysteries unfolding
City of Guilds, fashioning flax
Through centuries fluctuating
Till a November night in wartime
When “Koventrate” joins vocab.
In “Camera Principis” I’ll never send you away
From newly born City, inspiring every day.
