Built in far other times, those sculptured walls. Attest the faith which our forefathers felt. Strong faith, whose visible presence yet remains,.

We pray with deeper reverence at a shrine, Hallow’d by many prayers.

For years, long years, years that make centuries. Those dim lit aisles...

Glorious Gargrave - Leeds Liverpool Canal 2017

Adam was a Yorkshire man, as of course, was Eve.

Jesus was born here, and (I’m led to believe),

That Moses and Samson were found in the dark

On the canal near Gargrave, in the bar of Noahs Ark

Silent water slips away to sea,
Kissed by trout and dappled with evening light.
The gilded sun melts in purple shadows
Over the blue powdered hills.

There are days here.
Days moving round
The oakleaf stone,
The delta, The forgotten ford...
