The night has come
But skies still blue
The streets are bare
All but a few.
The master has his camera
Pointing at the sky
Looking for the images
That are now passing by.
St Mary’s in the distance
Standing proud and tall
Surrounded by the gravestones
Bells ringing out for all.
A bare light at a window
Showing someone’s there
The master isn’t hurrying
He has some time to stare.
The quaint old streets of Banbury
That all those years ago
Saw so much more activity
Some you don’t need to know.
If you stand there long enough
You hear voices from the past
Ghostly figures… shadows drawn
Life’s History so vast.
The Reindeer with the globe room
With panels on the wall
Where Oliver Cromwell made his plans
For battle ….some to fall.
The passages below the ground
The camera cannot see
A cool wind blows …the master
Stops for a cup of tea.
His work now done …he’s rested
He gets back on his feet
Looks up the windy narrow road
We know as Parsons Street.
