Damsel in Distress

Nick Birds SE Ilkley 2015 uffington avebury cropton Helmsley 112

This old house is airy

never fit for a fairy

she got her wings clipped

and became tight lipped

casting magic spells

at the tinkle of a bell

she never belonged to Pan

but went along with his band

of misfits on the eve

of nineteen sixteen

there he cried

as he looked up high
