read your poems morrsy loved them brought back such memories ,ie paris buns /coal brick etc as an old timer born in 1938 i recall much of the poverty but also as cathy bell said some of the warm &happy memories from way back ,2 up 2 down outside loo how did we ever cope ?,i was a mill girl from aged 14 to 18 ,i have moved on a bit since then but still recall my days at mill with fondness ,all great girls we were all in the same boat so to speak ,i like cathy was a wee ligoniel girl then a crumlin rd lass  :-\ though i now live a wonderful full life i guess i always will be a wee belfast girl made good  ;D

anyhow once again great poems and great memories

Good Morning Moorsy,

are you trying to confuse us with another 'Dunderin'  Thread?

Moorsy,

Welcome back. .I thought I was crackin' up but when  I posted that,  there was two "Dunderin In" threads beside each other.  I checked and there is another one on the second page posted by, no other than, "moorsy". 
Now who is  crazy ?  :  ;D

                          CARMEL STREET  1950

                Cobble stone streets,empty of cars
                gas street lamps along the street
                lamplighters ladder to fix the mantle
                a pool of light on a winters night.

                Wee front gardens at parlour houses
                iron railings gone for world war tanks
                streets with concrete air-raid shelters
                steel blast doors and iron shutters
                stink of [censored] and god knows what.

                Dark damp houses all in rows
                four small rooms with peeling paper
                gateleg table,couch, and sideboard
                coalhole underneath the stairs.

                Stone sink under scullery window
                one cold tap with squeeking handle
                lino floor and an old gas cooker
                never room to swing the cat.

                White-washed yards and outside toilets
                candle and matchs for at night
                radio times to clean your [censored] with
                big long chain to flush the loo.

                Coal smoke hanging in the air
                sooty fogs on winter nights
                turns the snow to black from white
                chills your body to the bone

                Outside the houses
                your would,nt know
                that its christmas time
                in five more nights.

Merry Christmas to you too Moorsy :smitten: It's good to see you back on the forum again and writing your wonderful poems ! They always tug at my heartstrings and bring back lots of memories. You are a very gifted writer.

The family gifts are all bought and wrapped now and I have to do my big Christmas food shop this Saturday for the turkey etc. I've stocked up on the Cadbury's Milk Tray and Roses ;D. .you know just the essentials for a chocoholic like me ::)
