As Lord Mayor of Liverpool

As Lord Mayor of Liverpool
I am pleased to be asked
To write a poem to celebrate this great City’s birthday,
Here at last,
I wanted to mention the beautiful buildings,
Our culture, our heritage, museums, cathedrals
and all the other fine things,
More importantly, the people, the heart of the City
There is so much to appreciate
In this our fine City
800 poems is the target to meet,
A marvellous tribute, I must agree
I hope the 800th poem is this one from me!

By The Right Worshipful the Lord Mayor Councillor Paul Clark.
