Going for an afternoon micro-adventure, fancy coming along?
and head for the hills and the moors.
There is a brisk breeze, warm and dry.
My hair will flap and flip around my head.
We will follow an old stone pathway, called the Moor Road
down to the village of Wycoller.
Along the way, we'll stop and admire the view
wonder about the ruins
take time to think
to day dream
to enjoy a brief promise of summer.
We'll sit on millstone grit boulders and watch the world go by
Watch out for puddles along the way
last night's very heavy thunder storm
has left watery evidence everywhere!
And in places, we stop and share stories
of people we have met
of anecdotes we have heard
and we'll smile and nod
as if this was the first time
we'd heard these tales.
Sharing our history with the boys and with you
helps us relive our past
helps keep memories fresh and alive.
We can admire the heather
and watch the bees foraging.
Then we'll work our way back home and put the kettle on
we will hand round the remains of birthday cake
and agree that
this wasn't a bad little walk
Thank you for walking out with us,
we'll do it again some time :)
