COMPAYNE GARDENS

Just watched a short film about T.S. Eliot in Compayne Gardens in West Hampstead.  Eliot was the first poet I ever read.  I'm not sure I understood much but i liked the sound of it.  I liked street lamps muttering and so on.  During the Festival of Britain my father dated a young woman who lived in Compayne Gardens.  Several decades later I did as well, but I ended up, I am delighted to say, married to her.
