My photograph of my hometown, Ilkley, to which the poem refers.


Sweet daffodils in yellow gowns

Look out across our busy town,

    And beds of pansies - purple, white -

    Display a bold but joyful sight.


White cherry-blossom ladened trees

Throw out their blooms upon the breeze

    Which settle on the dampened grass

    To watch the shoppers as they pass.


The church clock strikes from high above

And lovers walk and talk of love -

    Hearts entwined with love sublime

    And all because it’s Easter-time.
