Mathern Palace

Take me back to Mathern Palace

Wandering winding, leafy lanes

Brothers. sisters, lambs a-gambolling

Spying birds to guess their names

Oval eggs to warm a cupped palm

Dens in bushes out of sight

Climbing trees to reach the topmost

Scaling walls and taking flight

Plums for breakfast, lunch and dinner

Mushrooms plucked before the dawn

Snorting horses feigned indifference

Long before the day was born

Homeward bound with pockets bursting

Treasures to impress our Mum

Seeds and beads of perspiration

Mindless of the days to come

Take me back to Mathern Palace

Snowdrops pure against the rails

Place of childhood reminiscence

Heaven to fuel a grandma’s tales
