Bucks II

Bucks II

written by: Rich



Be a prince or Princes Risborough
The Lower, Upper Icknield Way
See, wander, the church at Ellesborough
Whiteleaf Cross to Beacon Hill the Ridgeway

Thatched cottages of Long Crendon
Stoke Bruerne, worth a look
Cheddington and railway’s bad men
A Brill farm a hideout for crooks

At Steeple Claydon, Nightingale Flo’
Turbulent family history of Stowe
North Marston where pilgrims go
Waddesdon Manor a stone’s throw

Olney Emberton Wolverton Bletchley and MK
Stony Stratford’s Watling Street
As “when in Rome” they say
“Sail the Union”, ain’t it grand
A walk along the towpath goes hand in hand

Trip on a narrow boat small price to pay
Coz round here we do it The Chiltern Way
By rail by air on foot by car
The beauty of Bucks best by far



I do the London 'Open mic' circuit having been writing for three years. I like to confront serious themes and try to explore reasons behind certain happenings.
