Bear Steps

Today I looked round Bear Steps Gallery Shrewbury. It is an old Tudor building, see pix of model of it below, also inside. It has been many things over the years including being an abode and factory . It’s now an art gallery for local artists to display their work. It is called Bear Steps as in Tudor times they did Bear bating in the pub opposite

Bear Steps

I wonder if a ghost

Is now the host

Of this Tudor house of old

So many stories to be told

From hence this house was built

Albeit on a tilt

The beams all skewif

And damp timber what a whiff

Many folks have passed on through

To do what they have to do

Each generation has a time

To fill this place with ryme

All the planks do creak

And the ceilings low

You will bump your head

And your brain will glow

and this history of house

though quiet as a mouse

ebbs its way through with a spirit

and a certain sense of “who done it!”

tales of past






and more

you will find the memories of these

as you enter through the door!

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
