“Maisonnettes” by Douglas Goldring


The houses in Windermere Street are 'let off in
Which perhaps is the reason it always seems so alert.
Little groups of young men and girls gather round
                                                                 its front doors,
And keen eyes at all windows observe their endeavors
                                                                              to flirt.
