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…..
