Fifty miles

by Jem Croucher


From Hampshire through to Sussex
I have walked o’er vale and hill
with a full pack on my back
yet my legs are working still!

I have walked through fields of yellow
and met lot of people on the way
pausing for a moment as
we all had lots to say

Tales of where we’re going
where we’ve stayed and been
Sharing precious moments
of the wonders we have seen

For this undulating countryside
is a feast for any eye
From the shady wooded valleys
to the lofty hills on high

From Hampshire through to Sussex
taking pictures on the way
to capture every moment
of each fantastic day

And now the task before me
as each memory brings a smile
is to bring to life those moments
in my poems for a while

So I hope that you’ll stay with me
as I have so much to share
And in these next few days with me
get a feel for being there
