Olympics past Cardington

The Olympic Torch is coming to Bedford and then onto cotton end, this should take it right passed the Cardington Sheds, the Poem below is in honour of this event.

Olympic dreams

A golden torch
passes hallowed turf
shadows of Giants cast down on runners path
Ghosts of ships sail by
as eyes watch the torch
they also watch the sheds

the Olympics are coming
the torch is touring
Bedford to cotton end
its light shall shine on girders
of giants standing

we will all celebrate
for the torch is coming
the Cathedrals of Cardington
proud old sheds of steel
cast their spell on the minds who see them
as the torch will also.

we will cheer and celebrate
who knows a ship may pass
and fly the torch to London
now that would be unsurpassed.

A poem by T Monk
