On the the Cotswolds edge, there is a town
Its name is Evesham, a jewel in the crown
Famous for its battle where De Montfort died
But his legacy lives on and democracy thrived.
The Avon through the town does' gently flow
A lively country town, its the place to go.
There's the mop, the fishing and boating too
There is plenty going on there's plenty to do.
Lots of nice pubs where you can have good beer
Or a picnic by the river, when skies are blue and clear
There's restaurants galore, if you fancy some food
Italian, Indian, Thai, whatever your mood.
It's famous bell tower made of Cotswold stone
Was part of the Abbey but now stands alone
Henry wanted to destroy it, raise it to the ground
Survived it did, and can be seen for miles around.
There's a leisure centre too if you want to stay trim
Rock climbing and tennis or a pool for a swim
The Blossom trail in springtime, where you can get on your bike
Or climb up Bredon hill where you can go for a hike.
Marilyn's night clubs there if you if you want to have a boogie
Or the Regal cinema to watch the latest movie
Musicals and shows well that's covered too
Evesham arts centre can entertain you.

Wrote this for a poetry contest about our town, it didn't win but out of 300 entries it reached the final fifteen and started me off on the road to poetry.
