Adur valley beauty

Today the river mirrors
The pale blue of the sky
As whitened Sussex fields
In frosted splendour lie

Lancing college chapel
Proud as always on the hill
Overlooks the Adur valley
Quiet and beautifully still

And as I gaze upon this vista
Briefly from the train
I am reminded that I live here
And a smile returns again

    This is a beautiful poem 🙂 I have seen it from the train too – it looks like something from a fairytale. 🙂

    It’s a lovely building…. I think they tried to film Harry potter there…. Or is that an urban myth?

    Although it looks like Hogwarts, I think that’s an urban myth Jacqui. Nice thought though!
