All wrapped in lace and fancy paper

All wrapped in lace and fancy paper …at last I have met my significant other, in the bright lights of the big city; two souls joined together through writing and music, who knows how the words will evolve from now on, these fifteen poems signify the shore of the watershed. The poetry verges on song, no doubt encouraged by our attempts to study ballads...Footsteps down the Strand is sung by Vicki, she recorded it in almost a single take and after only a single reading, for the obvious, and the not so obvious reasons, it remains a favourite for me.
