The Sounds Of Looe
Written By Katy Durnford 24/07/2017

the narrow streets criss cross
the go towards the beach
with buskers entertaining the crowds
onlookers with ice cream

the buildings all in a row
line the streets with narrow pavements
along the route is the Goal
with a canon outside it

the bars and restaurants lay between the shops
the tourist season is high
in the middle of the season
sharing the resorts gifts

people come to visit Looe
with its ancient bridge
coaches come and drop off folk
of all ages

tourists wander through the streets
buying gifts for their loved ones and friends
eating in the restaurants
and sitting by the beach

the hotels overlook the harbour
it is lined with fishing boats
daytrip boats and also a ferry
you can cross the river in a boat

fishing on the peer
and children diving into the sea
come and I will show you Looe
will you come with me?
"Walk with the Angels, for they are amongst us. Believe and you will see!"
