GOOD OLD ADRIAN! - LETTERS FROM ADRIAN MITCHELL NOW IN THE ARMSTRONG ARCHIVE
















































On Adrian Mitchell's Answerphone

On Adrian Mitchell's answerphone -
bells ring,
birds sing,
saxophones
swing!

On Adrian Mitchell's answerphone -
Blake works a miracle,
Big Ben sounds hysterical,
the world waxes lyrical!

On Adrian Mitchell's answerphone -
the passwords sigh,
the terrorists cry,
the children fly!

On Adrian Mitchell's answerphone -
leave plenty of love -
after the tone!

Dear Keith,

I hope you don't mind but I have put your Adrian Mitchell tribute poem on my Facebook page - it's just beautiful.
I've put a link to your Write Out page there too.

Thank you,

Joe Galliano
