christmas 1979

i bought this second hand poem book at Camden Market for just 10p many years ago. Not that i was into poems but i was attracted to the handwritten message on the first page. The book was a Christmas gift from Janie to her lover.





It’s a little sad that the book ended up in a flea market years later, but the fact remains that, in 1979 or before, they met each other and fell in love. 

Yes, i am a romantic at heart... even though i don’t look like one.
