Here you go the Extra bits about Almey St. John Adcock I promised you.

AFTERNOON DELIGHT
AND IS THIS A DELIGHT,

Yesterday I wrote out a beautiful poem by Almey St John Adcock, written before 1913 as this is the year my book was published. I always check to see if there is any information about the author and cricky did I get a wonderful surprise. His name Almey St. John Adcock; the poem I put in Croeso - Wales, at http://diddilydeedot.zoomshare.com/36.html

But Almey  St. John Adcock was so much more than this writer who wrote such beautiful words about the sunrise.

First there is his connection with music:-
These are his
words,
Almey St. John
Adcock.
The Dorothy Perkins rose [music] :
song / words by Almey St. John Adcock ;
music by Molly Carew
A full size copy of these wonderful bits of info can be found at ;

Then we have Almey St. John Adcock the Author of Travel Books
                                        Adcock, A. St. John (Arthur St. John), 1864-1930

Galloping Dick' by Almey St John Adcock


I also found this advert asking if anyone knew where they could get the full poem, Dick the Highwayman by Almey St. John Adcock I did find the following few answers at a forum but not the poem. Maybe someone out there knows of it and can help.

1.  Dick the Highwayman - A hundred and twenty years ago across the heath clad heights | posted 06-Apr-10'

A hundred and twenty years ago across the heath clad heights
galloping Dick the Highwayman came riding through the night
while back where the roadway straggles twix Oxford and Wicham Vale his lordship cursed

That will have to do for now, it is time I was over in Dr. Diddily and the Dee Dot's, visiting Italy. Bye for now Dodie. xx
