In Snowdonia

Astride the rock
And gazing down into the blue-gree tarn
Where a mountain rill flows noisily,
And a solitary gull wings
Its lazy way over hill and vale;

A group of girl hikers,
Fresh as lavender flowers
And sweet as summer roses
Wind around the pathway to my rear,
And, with giggles
And smiles

Pass me by.
