A wonderful poem -and suiting, too ...

All Scotland waits for her:
In dark glens, beside pale-green lochs
Men long for news.
Asleep in working Glasgow, asleep in well-set Edinburgh,
Asleep in granite Aberdeen,
They continue their dreams,
But shall wake soon and hope for letters,
And none will hear the postman's knock
Without a quickening of the heart,
For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?
Bill Phillips: For years, like many others, I assumed the Night mail was by John Betjeman

Very clever to get a link to Auden - good photo too.
Bill Phillips: Taken with my £30 Pentax f1.7 I bought on ebay.....has to be focussed manually as it is so old!

Well, I often say it, you are clever , Bill
Bill Phillips: Hahaha very kind of you Lisl. However, I am not that clever. I went to see a very old friend on Tuesday and I said I was going to take some pictures of her and her husband as every picture she posts on facebook is out of focus! Out of about a dozen I took only 2 were any've guessed the rest were out of focus!
Vecy evocative, Bill - and a fine old film!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Tom. The film is a little classic
