An image showing a funeral poem about Norwich.
An 8 verse poem is available at the foot of the page.

A poem can express innermost emotions after the loss of a loved one or friend.

The colourful crooked timber buildings and narrow cobbled
 road of preserved Tudor Elm Hill,
this unique historic street has a seat surrounding the girth of
an ancient tree creating calm and still.

The elaborate winged black metal dragon spandrel supported 
by a wooden arch in Dragon’s Hall,
the red bricks and vertical black timber outer encompasses
  interior studded A frames, carved and tall.

The imposing Norman castle is a diligent sentinel overlooking 
the city from it’s towering castle mound,
the gardens above the nearby shopping mall are restful away 
from the thriving city’s traffic and sound.

The Royal Arcade is an Art Nouveau visual delight with an airy 
  glass roof and soft pastel colour scheme,
with flower and bird Doulton tiles and a stained window,
    to be appreciated it really needs to be seen.

The River Wensum flows through the city past Cow Tower 
and the white roof dome of a former yarn mill,
with willow fronds resting gently on the clear water, the river
 plants gently moving, the water not quite still.

The Assembly House has a Georgian facade and an elegant 
 interior for sumptuous meals and afternoon tea,
restored after a fire, the wooden floors and chestnut leather 
armchairs create restful ambiance and ornate beauty.

Mousehold Heath covered with sparkling frost, the cathedral’s 
elegant spire visible above the morning’s misty haze,
a thatched summer house sits above the winding path of 
Chapelfield Gardens, perfect for a hot summer’s day.

With historical monuments and modern malls, a mixture of 
the old and new, this city you loved so dear,
whenever I walk along it’s winding streets in sunshine, rain or 
 snow, this brings you ever closer, brings you ever near.
