            "La Feasant"

We've memories from Tours of Mess Halls so hot.

Of Bully + rice + wasps. quite a lot

But what we look back on with pleasure  ..the most. 

Is "La Feasant" Field Clerks + jolly old "Roast"

                          ~~~~~~~~

We think of the C.B.s that other girls had

For dining in Cafes' with some Yankee lad.

And smile down our sleeves + laugh at  .the joke.. 

That anyone could get caught down that slope

               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

But the dinners of Quail Pie + Peasant + Lamb

Rum Omlette, "Bonne" Coffee + ice cream with jam

Of Cognac + Mulagar + Champagne that fizzed

And souvenir corks that from ceilings had 

                                                            wizzed

                 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We've tokens from Blighty + Paris + Tours

But those from "La Feasant" would fill any

                                                   store.

Old corks , faded flowers + records that

                                                      broke

Of Autograph albums + many a joke

                 ~~~~~~~~~~

The walks home by moonlight + thunder + rain

Of talks with that Tula Clerk along that long-lane

The good wine vision is filled Grace dear with glee

Whilst I was as happy + happy could be
