The Old Vicars' Close - Poem by James Hart

First time living in a close
Close closed at one end
That's why it's called a close

Neighbours are close in a close
Cars creep in a close
Shops close to this close

No clubbing in this close
No clutter in this close
No climbing in this close

No children in this close
No prams in this close
No working men live in this close

Three cats in this close
Two dogs in this close
Clouds of birds in this close

Pretty flowers in this close
Original trees in this close
Gorgeous blossom in this close

Close called God's Waiting Room
Close has 12 tiny bungalows
Much downsizing to fit in here

What may be called - A Close Fit!
