Treasure Island

Dave Alan Walker

(Pudsey, Leeds)

A Travelling Man


A travelling man
is a proud man
he'll fight for his family
he'll fight for his pride

He'll look after his own
like nobody else will
he'll keep them safe
when they need him the most
he'll never turn his back
on his family or pride

Where ever he stays
that's his home
until he moves on
to pastures new

Sometimes my friend
I wish I could travel
with you

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I don't know what it is like for travellers anywhere
else in the world, but in England they get a really
bad deal. They should be shown a lot more respect.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
