Little Langdale

Let's flee to Little Langdale,
where mountains pierce the sky
through layers of cloud and fog,
past birds that swarm like flies.
Let's find the quarry tunnels 
and tour Cathedral Cave 
We'll hear our voices echo
like pebbles skipping waves.
Let's walk the hills till twilight
past crumbling ancient walls. 
We'll stroll 'cross Slaters Bridge
and watch the evening fall.
Let's grab a pint or twenty
at the old Three Shires Pub. 
We'll drink the finest ale
and feast on English grub.
Let's stumble home together
'neath stars we've never seen.
We'll find our merry way
along the winding stream.

*Last year, my family rented a 16th-century cottage in the Lake District of England. It was surreal to wake up in the mountains every morning.

    I've always had fantasies about gallivanting through England, and you made me feel like I was actually there. Magical write, Heather.

    I'm not gonna lie, this entire poem made me green with envy... I have ALWAYS wanted to go to England! I love your poem, girly- nothing knew there! ;) I'm sorry I didn't have time to enter your contest... I am busy with college again, patiently awaiting summer vacation! Lol. I will try to be on the Soup when I can though and I will certainly stop by to read your work, of course! :)
