The Norfolk Broads

For 42 years you mean't nothing to me
Your peace and your beauty I did not see
Then 3 years ago you entered my life
Through a boating holiday for me and my wife.

From that very first meeting you stole my heart
The way you grabbed me, right from the start
And when I'm not there, there's a continual burn
The urge, no the need, that I have to return.

I see you for, maybe, 3 weeks a year
I've talked about a move just to be near
The meandering curves, the way that you flow
There's no place on earth that i'd rather go.

During my visits what beauty I've seen
A more tranquil place, I don't think I've been.
The otters, the heron, a kingfisher or two
Are a few of the reason I return, as I do

Oh Norfolk Broads please explain this hold
That you have on my heart but which can not be told
At every opportunity I will always return
For that flame you ignited will eternally burn.

Steve









Life isn't measured by the
number of breaths you take,
but by the number of moments
that take your breath away.

Steve hi

Well done! Another superb poem as was Hurley’s.  If you have no objections I would like to place it on my website.  If you would be happy for it to appear on my site please let me know what you would like me to put for the name of the author/poet.  

I have also sent a request to Hurley.

Kind Regards
Alan...

Thanks for that Steve.  Both poems are now on my home page.

I see you are on The Broads the same week as me and also starting on The Southern Broads.

I will keep my eye out for you. Cheers

Kind Regards

We are indeed Alan, we will also be crossing Breydon on the Monday, hence my question the other day regards mooring the night before.
We are looking at possibly staying at the Bell at St Olaves on the Sunday evening. We've never stopped there so thought we'd give it a go. If your close by there will be a beer at the bar for you Smile
