Achievement and Pride

We’ve walked a hundred miles
my brother Dave and me
The South Downs Way from Winchester
to Eastbourne by the sea
And when we reached the signpost
at the end we both agreed
that the feeling of achievement
was very good indeed

We’ve puffed and we have panted
up some really big, steep hills
But the views have been rewarding
with amazement yes, and thrills
And the fact that we have done this
over ten days as a guide
turns the word ‘achievement’
into one that’s tinged with pride
