~ Meet You .... ~

Meet you in the city
and we’ll go from there
What time you wanna meet up?
I know exactly where

I get off at four
so perhaps at quarter past
We’ll catch the number one down
D’you think the sun will last?
Sure it’s daylight savings
and there’s a real kick in it today
But there’ll be crowds down on the beach
Reckon the pier will be the way

Ok I’ll see you at four fifteen
don’t forget my towel and togs
Yeah four fifteen at Flinders St
On the steps under the clocks!

Well that’s what those two were planning! wonder what everyone else has :O)
For over 150 years [aprox] that has been the meeting place of Melbournians – it’s never even stated in conversations! – “We’ll meet up in the city” is ALWAYS under the Flinders St Clocks!
I also remember once when they tried to take the clocks away – I think every Melbournian shouted NO!
Thank God they haven’t! :O)

Thank you to the awesome Gregory John O’Flaherty for this record of our Awesome Icon Flinders St Station
The way Greg’s captured it makes me feel like home! – any Melbournian should have a copy of this in their bag when travelling Interstate or OS
Keep Happy! :O)
Chookas! ♥

adgray is a writer and a poet
- telling stories all her life,
- writing them down once she learnt how
“Scribbling! Always scribling!”
… and no there was nothing to be done about it!
Her poetry came later when the gift found her to be a ZETE segue (Zographonic Extemporanious Treatise Ekphrasis)
At times she can go into a trance-like state as poetry flows through her to the page and screen
Thank you for coming to read my words! ~ adgray~

    just brought back memories of some 34 years ago, I worked in Flinders Lane, in the rag trade. Pre marriage to the wonderful Col. Ran up those stairs probably everyday to go home to Coburg. I doubt I could walk up them now! And of course the racing up to the then Spencer St Station to get the train up to Bendigo on friday nights to spend weekend with him too. Oh, the memories, and in a mini skirt too..I remember the 70s well… ha ha , Regards, Heather
