Friday Fictioneers: Doris & Len




Doris & Len


In the 1960s and 1970s Doris and Len regularly played the piano for the shoppers who walked by. They would play and sing a variety of old love songs. They were lost in each other’s eyes sandwiched between the sweet shop and the chipper with the hairdressers overlooking them. Today the buildings have changed, some have closed down long ago. But their piano remains. A reminder for all of that cute little married couple who once played there. Sometimes Doris comes down, puts flowers on the piano, remembers her sweet Len and walks away humming his favourite tunes.

    Sweet and a little bit sad too. I’m glad with all the changes going on that the piano has remained.

  5. Tannille says:

    The piano grew old with them. Great symbolism.

  6. The piano is the symbol of their love long after the lovers are gone! Good one Lisa!
