I thought they would come back to me
Those years I lived in Kent
In the Sixties when both young and free
A degree was my intent.
But as the bus came round the hill
I saw to my dismay
Though Eliot college stood there still
There were buildings in its way!
We strolled around the grounds awhile
Found a cinema on site,
And library - modernised in style
PCs, not books, in sight!
Even the bus stop is displaced
And instead of lawns, paved ways
Of my time there barely a trace
What tricks my memory plays!
