Salts Mill Steps

Salts Mill Steps, copyright (c) Julie Wilkinson

My daughter learned
About the suffragettes
On BBC Bitesize.

Emmeline Pankhurst
Born 1858,
Five years later
Than these steps
Were built.

Stone is hard,
Set.
But,
Over years,
Many pounding feet
Will wear it smooth.

That is why we march.
