As the river flows along,
And birds above do sing their song,
The fish they swim their merry way,
Happy with the sunshine out today.
Majestic are the trees near by,
For colours on them you can rely,
And as the branches bend with age,
They nearly meet the brush and sage.
As further on the path I tread,
I suddenly see a rabbit’s head,
Of to his burrow I expect,
Hope there’s no dog to grab his neck.
There’re horses in the fields nearby,
Relaxing ‘neath the sun that’s high,
Before the folk come for a trot,
Whether they be fat or not.
The main roads looming up in sight,
And spoilt my treasures of delight,
Cars and buses crash my ears,
Enough to make you shed some tears.
It was so peaceful by the stream,
I could have sat there and had a dream,
Never mind what you can do,
But get a thrill when you next go through.
