Rapture : Sheffield Place from Invigilator Derby



beneath gloomy hills
homeward I walk
in solitude

sometimes we play
on the way home from school
on Wincobank Hill
breaking into gangs
to throw stones at each other

off Newman Road
in the half-built houses
it’s hide and seek
up and down ladders
scaffold pole javelins

a happy time
for me a time of rapture
clear and loud

Paul Conneally

See and hear Paul read RAPTURE as part of his talk for Global Cities Week in Coventry :
