If I could stay for one more day

I would do again the woodland trail

Over that hill and beautiful vale

Through the ancient trees

 I would listen again to the roaring wind

Up high in the canopy

Rambling on through a glorious carpet 

 Of flowering beauty

 The meadow, what a heavenly sight

Passing fields of swaying barley 

And over the stile

Treasuring each mile

 Then back again to a very special place


A piece of hidden Dorset

An unspoilt place
