Fields of Lavender

by Jem Croucher

We walked in fields of lavender
on the sixth day of July
On a summer evening
beneath a clear blue sky
Lordington near Chichester
high on Sussex hills
to watch the setting of the sun
A cure to cure all ills

A setting here for lovers
romancing with a smile
on this our anniversary
(We stayed for quite a while)
The sun sank low, the fragrance grew
as we sat and watched the scene
here amongst the lavender
my soulmate Sal and me

The chance to walk in and watch the sun set over the lavender fields with a glass of wine. Perfect for our 39th wedding anniversary this year.

  1. Beautiful sentiment, congratulations and happy anniversary 🙂

  2. Not one to extol the sentiments expressed in your words but enjoyed the mental picture invoked by your great work of rhyme. Will encourage my friends the bees to visit.
