A simple place – where
Warmed by sun and love,
As on a mother’s lap, aproned with flowers,
Lulled by the soft songs of summer.
And all around me
Kentish air is quick with scented sounds
Whispering all that England was
And all I hope ’twill be
Here laughter and good fellowship
Grow easy with the Hazel, hip and haw.
Good food is on the plate,
Thankfulness in the heart.
Here sleep is rest
And waking – more.
