'Strawberry Field ... An Autumn Vision'

by Kevin Austin

A young John Lennon is wondering how to get into the wonderland in front of him, the garden of Strawberry Field. He ponders as he leans inquisitively on the wall across the road to conquer new territory. He will tell his friends of 'the outlaws' Pete Shotton, Nigel Walley and Ivan Vaughan about this new playground, where there are trees to climb and dens to be built and perhaps do battle like Amazons and Swallows.
