My Little Lady Of The Lakes

Poem By Tom Higgins

I look upon Lady Grasmere,
from atop Dunmail Raise,
as she lies in her amphitheatre
of beauty unsurpassed,
mere language cannot express
words powerful enough to praise,
to describe such a vision,
such a total sensory blast.
This bejewelled goddess
of Mother Nature's glory,
laid out before me
on a bed of velvety green,
telling a wonderful
and very ancient story,
throughout the millennia
by many adoring eyes seen.
And still she lies
in mostly natural splendour,
little of her changing as
each new age doth pass,
I stand gazing, I'm awestruck,
and I surrender,
my whole being, willingly,
to this little Lakeland lass!

The Lord above, he came to me and whispered in my ear,
'some folks down there, live their lives in ignorance and fear,
so think how easy it would be to get them to pay,
to listen to you spoutin' off about me every day! '

They launched at dawn, Jim and his mate,
both men unaware of their mutual fate.
The boat was small, the sea was calm,

Song Of Life?

If the god I don't believe in,
really made it all.
Why did he include death and illness,
