LadyPatricia Posted September 9, 2014 Share Posted September 9, 2014 Posted this elsewhere so if you have already read my poem i do apologise. I hope you enjoy it and I'm sure a lot of you will understand what I mean THE NORFOLK BROADS. For 42 years you mean't nothing to me Your peace and your beauty I did not see Then 3 years ago you entered my life Through a boating holiday for me and my wife. From that very first meeting you stole my heart The way you grabbed me, right from the start And when I'm not there, there's a continual burn The urge, no the need, that I have to return. I see you for, maybe, 3 weeks a year I've talked about a move just to be near The meandering curves, the way that you flow There's no place on earth that i'd rather go. During my visits what beauty I've seen A more tranquil place, I don't think I've been. The otters, the heron, a kingfisher or two Are a few of the reason I return, as I do Oh Norfolk Broads please explain this hold That you have on my heart but which can not be told At every opportunity I will always return For that flame you ignited will eternally burn.
