Stevie Taite

(30th January 1973 / Kent, England)

Our Auntie Maggie (Roundeau)


Our Auntie Maggie used to sit
In winters evening she would knit
No sooner was one garment done
She'd go and start another one
Selected from her knitting kit

She'd always have a candle lit
The gentle light it did emit
Was how it was when she was young
Our Auntie Maggie

Our Uncle Dave worked down the pit
He'd come home late covered in shit
There'd always be a warm bath run
Poor sod, he barely saw the Sun
She loved him so, the silly git
Our Auntie Maggie

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
