A Virtual Tour
This is on my doorstep, just outside my back door.
Forty plus years I’ve lived here. still got loads to explore.
The water and the woodland still fills my mind with awe
The water holds many treasures like tench, one I do adore
I have named just the one, but there’s many, many more
Like carp, bream, roach, and eel, to name another four.
Then there’s perch, pike and chub, making 8 the final score.
Of birds there are many, on the water, and on the shore
Please do come and visit, and like me you’ll be in awe
Of what nature has to offer of that you can be sure!
No I am not forgetting there’s bug’s, and much more.
Like fungi in season, and seeking them out a welcomed chore
Then there’s the flora, one can nor ignore.
Natures not fallen short for there’s species galore.
Please do come and join me on this virtual tour.
Like me, you’ll find there so much to explore
