past and present


Can you imagine a carpet of blue ?
With the streams, bubbling and gurgling, flowing through,
Imagine the sweet smelling fragrance of flowers too,
You can stand in solitude to ponder,
Or if you wish you can walk through the rustling leaves and wander,
This is the carpet of blue,
You can walk through,
This is a real bluebell wood, as a boy, I knew,
It is also a magic carpet of blue,
If it's a magic carpet, in your view,
Then Lister's Dale is for you.

Terry Colley, December 2009
