WALKABOUTSVERSE 160 OF 230

Poem of 160 of 230:  IN MACCLESFIELD'S MULBERRY TREE - SUMMER 2001

After hearing the ways
    Of the old silk-weaving trade,
While being served some tea,
    Within the Mulberry Tree,
Memories came back to me
    Of - during my infant days -
Feeding ‘worms till sheaths were made.
