BANBURY CAKES

Poem about Banbury Cakes.

Banbury has changed over the years,
Filling many Banburians with fears.

As children we played in Beargardens at will,
At weekends we walked to the top of Crouch Hill.

The Warwickshire hounds met at Banbury Cross
And the cattle market going was a real loss.

People had tea in Brown’s cake shop in Parson’s Street,
Gran bought Banbury cakes, she loved anything sweet.

Where once we played and had picnics in old meadows,
Now stand factories and new dwellings in rows and rows.

But all is not lost and with good cheer we look
At the old nursery rhyme we’ve all read in a book

About a fine lady upon a white horse,
The one connected with Banbury Cross of course.

Once again a lady on her horse is there for all to see,
A wonderful statue for the people of Banbury.
