Aira Force


Aira Force beckoned us to go and see
It's source amongst the Lakeland hills
It's tranquil setting of historic note
Where Wordsworth spied his daffodils

His eyes would have seen the same as mine
As he stood there on that morn
Where warm lush meadows and pink foxgloves
The path edges and steps adorn

That water which under bridge spills
And whose riverside beauties evince
Would have gladdened his view in just the same way
As mine despite the centuries since

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
