As I was going to…
have to explain this matter
at some point or the other,
why not do it now?
I’ll tell you how
I differentiate between the two,
because someone might think that they are one
and the same –
perhaps that someone might be you?
St. Ive is a small 4-Part village
in South East Cornwall
Liskeard and Callington,
that’s where it is usually seen –
it is also pronounced to rhyme with leave,
weave, and Adam and Eve.
St. Ives is down near the toe
there on the North Coast it lies;
in a beautiful seaside setting
with shops and cafés,
and all manner of seaside things,
not forgetting that there is nursery rhyme
to help you pass your holiday time.
‘As I was going to St. Ives
I met a man with seven wives…’
and so on.
The trouble is,
but, they are not really the same,
they just have a similar ‘looking’
Why it isn’t St. Ive
well, only my friend Steve
could answer that –
but, he would be wrong.
