HOW GLAD I AM

How glad i am that I happened to be

In the England I knew and used to see,

When roads and lanes were mostly free...

Hurrying home from school to tea.

 

How glad i am that I used to know

Those places where I would come and go,

Up hillsides high...over bridges low

To see my England on daily show.

 

How glad i am to recall country air

Like champagne when cycling everywhere

But never so rushed that I couldn't stare

At all that waited for me to share.

 

How glad i am to hold memories fast

Of all that saw my maturity cast,

And how that gone-forever past

Will live as long as my life will last.

Yes, I miss the green fields of England, the hedgerows, the green leafy tunnels, the crooked High streets with 400 years of architecture.........

.......but not everyone living on top of each other

AND...

Far far beyond the distant horizon...

For, once over this life

pastures new, will come

plainly in to sight for all to view.

Great musing my 'old friend'
