TO A NEPHEW
You were just a boy,
The shorts were gone, for schoolboy longs,
And in the days that passed
He wanted men in strength not years,
So bye for now my nephew strong,
|"I would like to lead a good life, with a job I enjoy, even if I don't become a millionaire or famous."
|George was killed in a cliff fall 20th March, 1982. Eight months after Cathy died.
This poem was inspired by a visit, several days before his accident.
