IN CALLING FORTH AND STRENGTHENING THE IMAGINATION

from first dawn
by day or star-light
everlasting motion

little jimmy norcliffe
he looked after me
sorted me out
with a good shovel
and a pair of wellingtons

high objects
the mean and vulgar
works of man

showed me how to dig
without hurting my back
to lay concrete slabs
write out betting slips
on a bag of cement

enduring things
life and nature
purifying

King of Jumpers

Val-doonican-morning-in-the-co-334269
In the 1970s a staple of Saturday night home entertainment was Irish singer Val Doonican.

Val's trademark was to always be wearing a patterned jumper or cardigan.

He was the King of Jumpers.

Val is sure to be represented in an original artwork by Paul Conneally in The Blind Fiddler Home Entertainment 1806 - 2012 exhibition at Snibston Discovery Museum, Coalville, Leicestershire.
