Little Lizzie Christian

Little Lizzie Christian
flower
of the people
for the people
headscarf
boots
and
hand knit shawl
she was at every occasion
even the new borne
who
got their first welcome to life
from Little Lizzie Christian.

and

for sixty years
Liverpool’s diminutive rose
brought romance to
shop girls
office girls
judge and jury
career girls
working girls
humble and haughty
who all
took the scent of
Little Lizzie Christian
- home.
