Seaside

fullsizeoutput_1a5a

On the wall is a sign
that points to Seaside
It points the right way
and we’ve nothing to hide
For just ten minutes walk
takes us down to the shore
It’s a privilege yes, and
we’d not ask for more

And I’ll tell you right now
full advantage we take
for it would be a crime not to
for goodness sake!
And we need no reminder
but the sign on the wall
points to the place
that we love most of all

Had a week off

imgp5111

Had a week off
didn’t do very much
just listened to music
and reading and such

Tidied a bit
sorted some stuff
and to be perfectly honest
that was enough

For a week off from work
is simply the best
and cannot be beaten
for a jolly good rest

Went for a walk

fullsizeoutput_1a1f

Went for a walk
down by the sea
Near to the waves
as they sang to me

Went for a walk
up on Sussex hill
Near to the Downs
a longing to fill

Went for a walk
along river’s bank
always a thrill
to be perfectly frank

Went for a walk
just down the road
and thought of this rhyme
there as a I strode

A glimpse of Spring

fullsizeoutput_1a58

I caught a glimpse of Spring
on the ground the other day
as a host of flowering crocuses
gathered there to say
that the sunshine’s getting warmer
so it’ll really not be long
before the sound from every meadow
is the voice of Springtime song

Surfcall

fullsizeoutput_1a4c

Sun on water
Surf a flat white
The beach as ever
A wonderful sight
Wavelets turning
Watch them fall
The sea in movement
With its call
Draws me in
And to its sound
I am as ever
Duty bound
For sea and surf
Are part of me
And I am one
Beside the sea

Windmill

imgp1389

Sails though empty caught the light
of golden evening sun
as the windmill here at Kingston
was admired by everyone

We’d caught a glimpse on the descent
from the high Drover’s trail
but here up close and personal
its beauty was unveiled

A testament to ages past
the miller lays at rest
with his home, the Kingston windmill
restored to look its best

Steep

Descending down to Kingston
the Drovers path was steep
So we all walked slow together
like a little herd of sheep

The sun sank down behind us
but the landscape there below
was still awash with sunshine
and in places still aglow

And over in the distance
Lewes town lay nestled there
Our destination on this day
with walking we had shared
