Northcourt – May 2018
We met for French songs to rehearse on the upper deck
Much to the intrigue of other passengers wondering what the heck!
The magnificent Medieval Northcourt our home for five days
With its simply stunning grounds and secret ways
With skies blue and a bright yellow sun
We’d look out each morning with much walking to be done
With Jane in front GPS in hand
And Chris at the back of the merry band
Apologies to Chris for creating so much chatter
As the birds deserted us as we natter and natter
Lunch spots were chosen with consummate care
A view to enjoy, quiet with soft grass and fresh air
Cliffs to the left of us, cliffs to the right
From the top of the Stenbury Trail it was quite a sight
We paid homage to Tennyson at Farringford during the day
And that evening in the music room, Michael thought we should all play
Google helped to each find a verse – Hooray!
Some Betjeman, Causley, Nash, Tennyson and others we all did say
Thanks to all for such bon hommie
As we met to chat each day for cake and tea
And huge thanks must go to Jane for her planning and leading
Has she booked for 2019 we are all thinking…..
