I Spy…

an alphabet in the Nene Valley

Buzzards soar, cuckoos call
Egret, geese and goslings.
Herons stand, kites search
Swifts, swans and signets
While over all the skylarks sing.
Bridges span, canoes drift,
Cycles, ramblers and dogs.
Gravel taken, lakes filled
Locks, mill race and weirs
While through it all the river meanders.
Badby rises, Barnwell mill
Cogenhoe, Everdon and Flore.
Islip's spire, Oundle's school
Woodford, Weedon and Yarwell
While in each place, a church proclaims.

I started running 14 years ago to help manage anxiety and depression and found the endorphins helped me in another way...to write my sermons for Sunday.... and then inspiration came for poetry. A Christmas present 2017 was a book by Jo Bell, challenging the reader to write a poem a week for a year. This blog showcases these and other poems composed on the run.
