Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #270 #And so it began

Fifty years ago

I can say that I was there,

with a great crowd

at the Bath music fair,

watching all the top

rock bands of the day,

playing their music

on a rudimentary stage.

A local farmer at the show

liked it so much,

being well known for his

entrepreneurial touch,

realised this could be

an exciting way,

to keep the young happy

and also make it pay,

decided to hold on his farm

an annual jamboree

which is now the festival ,

known as Glastonbury

  5. What a great memory. It’s been on my bucket list for years – they do say you’re never too old, and McCartney got quite a few years on me!
