Reminiscing about my walks on the Red Hill Grounds in Surrey, London, near Tammo’s “Tall Beeches” in summer



Tall Beeches On Red Hill

The Red Hill grass, so lush and green
Horses grazing, calm and serene,
Wood Thrush leaping in the bush
Hares out of warrens, their luck push.

With a pencil and a sketch book
I roam the meadows along the brook,
Rippling waves do splash a bit
Fish in the rivulet leap and dip.

The sun sets mellow in these fields
Kissing the petals and fresh leaves,
Long shadows o’ tall Beeches trail
Slender tracks of leafy bales…

Moonbeam in the dewdrops shine-
Pearls of silver in Nature’s shrine,
Fireflies do fly abound,
Lighting up the hilly grounds…

And somewhere the Cuckoo coos
Looking for its mate in groves
Country fox comes out with pups
Combing for insects and grubs.

And I return to my fold
Through my window the drama unfolds
Twinkling stars in sky do shine
Looking down these peaceful climes…
