Two Rings

by Jem Croucher

Two rings on the final day
Familiarity
A walk which we have made our own
my brother Dave and me
A circle of eight miles
chalky trails beneath our feet
The sunshine smiling once again
to make the week complete

Piper in the Weald

by Jem Croucher

1 of 5 in the Jemverse ’31’ series

Heading down Fulking Escarpment
with a piper to herald the way
The entourage headed down to the pub
on this lovely February day
The view of the Weald was breathtaking
as it always is in the sun
The company laughing and happy
and having plenty of fun

Just over five miles today
Took us a couple of hours in the sun
Along part of the South Downs Way

Mile Oak

by Jem Croucher

 

Nestled underneath the downs
Mile Oak paves the way
So many opportunities

We could take the path to Truleigh
climbing steep beside the field
Before things level out at Fulking
with fine views across the Weald

And the good thing for us is that it’s really quite close
So we’re up there time after time

Fields of yellow ochre

by Jem Croucher

IMGP4194

In fields of yellow ochre
wandering, carefree as a cloud
drifting on a summer breeze
I felt a richness here endowed
The chalky soil beneath my feet
hard packed by days of sun
and through the haze the shine of sea
on this day that’d just begun

Wonderful view

by Jem Croucher

IMGP2589

Vibrancy of morning
attracts me again
as westwards I travel
on another train
Over the river
reflecting the blue
a fleeting glimpse
of the Shoreham sea view

Magnificence

by Jem Croucher

 

And I will never tire of this
fine view of Sussex Weald
Each time I’m here I am sustained
renewed, alive and healed

A yearning

by Jem Croucher

 

Morning mist hovers, silent this morning
Over the meandering course
Of a tributary born of the Adur
Attesting to Nature’s quiet force
