POEM – BEESTON HILL – Sheringham, Norfolk


Beeston Hill - Sheringham Norfolk



on just climbed
Beeston Hill
heavy-breathed thoughts
are memoried in joy
The changeless calm
of remembrance and
uncluttered peace
of mind sings
in the urgent Norfolk wind

is no then or when
no next or soon
tomorrow tends itself
yesterday’s love abides
in the cherished memories
of childhood dreams
Never lost
Never gone
Or forgot

the impassive sea
is calm today
the air alive with hope
from West Runton
to Weybourne
with Sheringham in between
A champagne day
of sun and light
captured in tiny Anna’s
giggles of delight in life

voices thread the breeze
calling re-calling
echoing down the years
friendship’s horizon shared
ever seen never crossed
from timeless Wells to
Brancaster and Cley
We walked and talked
We laughed a lot
and let our spirits fly

stands this proud
but modest hill
dividing land and sea
a place for rooting memories
a place to simply be
a timestone on our journey
returning whence we came
the arc of life a circle
ever-changing yet the same
