Mill Hill Wanderings

Mill Hill in the sunshine
on a perfect July day
The river in the valley
and the hills across the way
We’re the only people up here
so the silence is complete
Just the panting of our little dog
and the tramping of our feet

The views across the valley
spectacular as ever
Takes the eye far out to sea
which borders on the clever
And we in all this beauty here
upon our doorstep close to home
can come here any time we like
for a wander and a roam

Shoreham by the Sea

I have a beach of shingle mixed

With golden sea-washed sand

Its grandeur and its mystery

Forged by God’s own hand

I have a river winding through

The valley from the sea

Its tidal water carrying

Swans and seabirds oft to me

I have a range of rolling hills

The green of Sussex fair

And there really isn’t anything

With all this to compare

My home is here with all of this

It is a special place to be

The river, hills and beach that is

Shoreham by the Sea
