River Mersey seen from our bedroom window


The river a sliver of silver 

slashed by the trees 
soon to green up 
and hide our view of the ships
the sandbanks and the high tides.

Bounded on the far shore by a skein of amber lights.
Proof of roads and people over there.

Further away the hills of Deeside,
And further still the wilds of Snowdonia.

At our old home I could see Snowdon from my bed.
Here I see a river and hills 
but not a mighty mountain.

Oh Maggie, I am a Mountain person having spent 5 years with a view of the wonderful Maluti Mountains of Lesotho as my view ... I love the large Welsh mountains of Llangollen & Snowdonia. Thanks for stopping by my blog again.
