When the Milkman brought the bread


This lovely poem is written by Tracey Curtis as she reminisces about the Milkman …

When the Milkman brought the bread

Today I went down to the shop
To get some food and drink in
I brought some bread some pop and milk
And then this got me thinking

I don’t know why I have to say
Why these things pop in my head
But it got me thinking of the days
When the milkman brought the bread

Can you remember way back when
When the milkman used to call
Our milkman was quite young I think
And quite chirpy as I recall

They would start their day so early
When most were in bed
They would drive a little milk float
Stacked up with milk and bread
