This month's poet and photographer explore Bromley House Library...
Would you believe me if I told you
That amongst the
Hustle and bustle of buses
And the clickety clack of trams on tracks
Amidst hungry commuters
Seeking out speedy snacks -
Somewhere in the vicinity of the
Nottingham Council House clock chimes
Lives a little dime?
Standing quiet as a mouse
Is the majestic Bromley House
With a simple initiation code
You can even bring a spouse!
A facilitator of great knowledge
This building alone has a story to tell
By its spiralling stairwell
Filled with little alcoves
So tranquil that you can get lost in
One of the thousands of books
Although this hidden gem
May sometimes be overlooked
The authenticity of its character
Is something to be cheered
Because as soon as you walk in
“Your thoughts are welcome here”.
A Poetic Perception
We have a favour to ask
LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
