as the day and night collide
And as my pen finds solace
with a verse to capture this
with music an encouragement
I slip away to bliss

Adventure Planning

my brother Dave and me
Take maps and pens and paper

born seventeen seventy-two
Who later, when he’d qualified

On the Worcester and the Birmingham
canal, which is quite fun
A peaceful little wander
Present blending with the past

that the city where it’s fast
