Léonie lionised

Pentameters founder Léonie Scott-Matthews

• FOR Léonie Scott-Matthews on her British Empire Medal:

Don’t be afraid: she’s still a human being.
It’s just that someone noticed her, and seeing
How many and how worthy are her deeds
On Art’s behalf or how she’s nurtured seeds
That subsequently grow
up straight and tall
To the great joy and benefit of all
In our community proud and intense,
Concluded it was only common sense
To notify those findings to our Queen,
Who took account of them and what they mean:
That she among the crème of Britain’s crème
Belongs by right: Léonie, BEM.

Antrim Road, NW3
