    BIRNBECK IS A LADY

    This island rock stands alone,
    Empty buildings – no one’s home,
    Pity then the awful waste,
    Like a lady too darn chaste.

    Come my friends court her dearly,
    Build esteem, bedeck her clearly,
    Nurture her she’ll glow and shine,
    Beauty growing most sublime.

    Such a phoenix from the ashes,
    All embracing to the masses,
    Along her pier, beloved, waiting,
    Weston’s jewel – scintillating.

    Capt. J.Earl


    BIRNBECK ISLAND PIER

    This ancient rock still proudly stands,
    Mid`st ebb and flow by Weston Sands,
    In it’s heyday host to steamers,
    Calling here decked out with streamers.

    Entertainment – high spring tides,
    Victorian evenings, lots besides,
    Now my friends this is the story,
    We`d like it back to former glory.

    Connected to the land by pier,
    `Tis been unused for many a year,
    Except for answering mayday`s flare,
    Brave men launching lifeboats there.

    Let us too respond to calls,
    Encourage life around it`s walls,
    Give it heart and pulse anew,
    Then stroll the pier – it’s good for you.

    Joe Earl
