Ouse (Lewes)

Meandering down through ancient town

A trickle now, a stream

Belying far more turbulent times

In its history it has seen

Sunshine on the water paints

A quiet picture now

Yet not many years past, the floods rose up

To Prison Hill’s high brow

No mark left now of that tragic time

A memory left alone

As Lewes sees more tranquil days

In its peaceful Sussex home
