A poem by Della Leslie – about Lyme Regis

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:45 pm by aleksan

Out of meter…but not out of fashion….!

There is a town by the sea, and its name was Lyme
Which dear Prinny Prince did favour in his prime,
So Lyme Regis it became
And, was never quite the same……. … !

From humble fishing village stance,
Quite lovely at a glance,
Fashionable people did follow the king
To supper, to dance and to sing…..

Each evening the Assembly rooms would fill,
With hopeful ladies in all their frills.
Looking for husbands, with lots of dosh please!
All others may cause nought but a sneeze….

And so, thanks to the king Lyme Regis became
A hot spot for finding rich husbands, quite tame….
But despite all the dancing and singing and hossle
All that was found was a lot of old fossils…..
