Ooh Eck

Wottle I do now

Both wanna skip and cry

See one year out

And another one in

Acting shoe size not age

Happiness surrounds

Peace within and without

Bounteous joy

My heaven on earth

Alone not lonely

Together not part

Natures communion

With love and thanks to you all

At Wareham Office.

Aska and it shall be given you

Sika and ye shall find

Look and you shall see

The beauty all around

A wondrous union

'Tween nature and man

Bringing joy to the heart

Peace to the soul

Food for the mind

Fullness for all those

Lucky enough to be

Here in this space

At this time

In our country

In this county

In this now

'Peace which passes all understanding'. Thank-you.

The Sika Woodland Walk brings out the poet in me .... this while sitting on a bench looking at the overwhelming beauty and asking myself two simple questions:-

What do you want to do with your life?

Is a question I so often ask

And the answer's always the same

I'm doing it.

Where would you like to be in six months time?

I ask as I wander along

And the answers always the same

I've already arrived.

Thank-you from the bottom of my heart
