In Calling Forth and Strengthening the Imagination in Boyhood and Early Youth – Paul Conneally


IN CALLING FORTH AND STRENGTHENING THE IMAGINATION IN BOYHOOD AND EARLY YOUTH

from first dawn by day or star-light everlasting motion

little jimmy norcliffe he looked after me sorted me out

with a good shovel and a pair of wellingtons

high objects the mean and vulgar works of man

showed me how to dig without hurting my back

to lay concrete slabs

write out betting slips on a bag of cement

enduring things life and nature purifying
