A poem about Memories Of Deddington by Brenda Difford.

I lived amongst you some years ago, But moved house, it was time to go.

Off to Banbury to Bloxham Road, to make new friends, own a new post-code.

I’ve been here some time and like it it’s true, But Deddington town I do miss you.

I loved your shops and your little lanes; I miss the traffic and the American planes.

The bells at the church were always ringing, News of funerals and weddings bringing.

The antique shops sell things interesting and old, If we don’t have it we’ll get it” is what I’m told.

You have a potter a jeweller too, A butcher, a baker but no public loo.

The pubs are quaint and serve good ale, the locals are friendly and tell a grand tale.

That’s about all I had to say, Except that maybe I’d return one day.

After 30 years that’s just what I have done. I am back and the day is won

Never ever say never, kiss the ground – for ‘what goes around really does come around’
