Yorkshire (Happy Yorkshire Day!)

Everyone here creates

We feel the urge to express

We can’t get enough

Music, writing, dress

Bling and bingo

Bhajis and barges

Sequins and sheep

Green to burn your peepers


Deep secret forests

Green emerald vales

Amazing landscapes

Make you want to sing

Tell tall tales

To shout and say this is mine

Yorkshire tingles down my spine


Yorkshire means love

Yorkshire means fight

Yorkshire means beauty

Yorkshire means light


Bradford born and bred

Tied by invisible thread

York I learned by your walls

Castleford I thrived on your island,

Then followed the Aire home

But anywhere in Yorkshire is grand

I feel I belong wherever I roam.


Jennifer Winterburn
