I remember now



It was a fine morning
We set off early
Walking in the hills
Just Julie and me

Each too a backpack
Drink to quench our thirst
And some snacks of course
We were free, so free

We crossed the stiles then
Passed the still dark copse
A lark spied us both
Close, a buzzing bee

Now an uphill climb
Meadows scent now gone
Windswept trees were seen
Now there's rocky scree

We now stopped awhile
On a jagged col
Took a well earned rest
To seek the distant sea

We were out of breath
But she smiled at me
Look so intimate 
So I touched her knee

I remember now
Those days so long past
Our love in full bloom
And still yearn for thee

  4. Copse meadow and larks make this an English setting. Wistful memories from your youth no doubt . No backpacks in those days...knapsacks methinks!:)
