Holding My Lakeland Memories
Walking along this nature path
such beautiful colours before your eye
revealing the greatness of God's creation
such splendour and majesty sky high
This reminds me so much of the lakes
there surrounding Keswick so very fair
walking along Derwent Water's edge
glories abound but no Derwent bear!
Colouring of the trees so very majestic
stops one in your tracks, you must admire
leaves you spellbound almost still
imagine now sound of a male voice choir!
These memories so forthcoming
for this year covid 19 did block
any opportunity to visit my delight
beauty personified as feet can't walk!
Being so thankful for past memories
so many to look upon and gaze
many a tale one could speak upon
but I don't want to start a craze!
(Thinking of being in the English lakes at least once a year, that's been the case for past 30 years but covid 19 stopped that this year so holding on to my memories as that's all I have of these lovely lakes.)
