Title: The Posty with the Mosty

Bradley Part 1

We wish to vote young Bradley Meres
We thank the boss atNewton`s Lane
And hope he`ll let him out again.

From Moor Green up to South View road
he trundles forth his heavy load
and all we females breathe a sigh
each time we see him passing by.

In sun and cloud and wind and hail
he brings along our daily mail,
with baited breath and anxious smile
we wait to see him for a while.

And sure enough- not slow but steady
down comes Bradley, at the ready.
then each letter box he fills
with writs and coupons, cards and bills.

He labours hard to earn his dough,
he works hard for us girls also
and we are grateful for his deeds,
the way he caters for our needs.

Little things –like lighting fires,
Painting fences, mending wires,
Washing dishes, fetching fuel,
mowing lawns and winding wool.

Then off upon his bike he`ll set,
the finest `mail` we`ve had here yet,
And we deliver him a toast,
“Long may young Meres be on our post”.
