Up up and away poem book

P Handley was evacuated from Portsmouth to Melton Mowbray at the beginning of the Second World War, and much of her poetry is a celebration of the town and the surrounding countryside. Her memories of Melton Mowbray span almost seventy-five years, and here she recalls in verse the local landmarks, unforgettable characters and vanished way of life of another era. With the same affection and humour, her poems cover subjects as diverse as a balloon flight on a glorious summer's evening, the temptations of full-cream milk and sugary treats, the pleasures of chatting, and watching the passage of the seasons from her window.

Paris Up, Up and Away

Balloons floating across the sky, What a wonderful way to fly, High up in the atmosphere, Where the air is fresh and clear. They are such a wondrous sight, Each one glorious in it's flight, All with designs in vivid hues, Giving us such tremendous views. Silently they drift away, Towards the dawn of a new day, Lit up by each quick burst of fire, Sending them up, higher and higher. What a way to spend a day, Ballooning, up up and away, To be above the fields and trees, Gliding along upon the breeze. No noisy motors to pervade the ear, Nothing at all for you to hear, Silence in such a wide-open space, Moving softly with a gentle grace.

I grew up a Montreal Expos fan. Those of us of a certain era retain our earliest memories of fandom in radio broadcasts, weekend television and sports cards. My love for the Expos came a little late — some time around or — so I missed the wonder that was and was not Ellis Valentine, the heartbreak of Blue Monday and my beloved Gary Carter at least according to Keri, and given the breadth of the book, I will reluctantly defer to his memory. From their inception to my awakening, the Expos were not always competitive, but they were interesting. How was I to know what a horrible place the Big O was? What a complicated city Montreal is? What a tumultuous history the Expos endured?
