A Winter Solstice Walk
You can, of course, snuggle up in the warm
with a cup of tea and a mince pie and
let Cliff and me do the walking for you ;-)
Here we are on the Ickworth Estate,
you can see the eliptical dome of Ickworth House
far across the snowy fields.
Past the Suffolk Sheep digging through the snow
to graze on the grass beneath. In a couple of months
their new born lambs will be skipping over the slopes.
Through a dark forest with tree trunks
painted with frosting by the North East wind.
. . . to see the mid-winter sun
at the turning of the year
cast its golden rays over the glitering snow.
The paper bag of PPP's Winter Mixture isn't yet empty - I'll have another rummage to see what I can find.
If you're traveling this Christmas, stay safe and take care.
