Every morning at seven thirty Wilf visits the old widows house in the hope of seeing Kelly. A new but firmly fixed routine. Sharp left out of the gate for a quick christening of the fire hydrant. Then across the green, past the well, the war memorial and the church before ambling down the lane . There we stop. The old trooper settling down in the middle of the road. Staring with unseeing eyes at Kellys gate. A shaggy Romeo waiting in wistful expectation. Sadly, Kelly and her mistress are not early risers and the shutters remain firmly closed. Wilfs attitude to this unrequited love - " If you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain ". There's always tomorrow.
