An elderly gentleman
Standing in the middle of the junction
Completely oblivious to the traffic
Trying to edge around him.
I took him by the elbow
And led him to the safety of the kerb.
"D'you know?" he said wistfully
Gazing at the mist haloed street lights,
"It was just such an evening as this
I last saw Nonie Collins!"

I must confess that I was the elderly gentleman
The passerby who led him to the kerb!
