THIS HIGH ROPE OF WATER

In this high rope of water
twisting from times long gone
down the famous falls
I have bound my vows
for ages still to come

Tomorrow

we’re going up Wessenden
to walk among the bracken
the reservoirs the weirs
the waterfalls where water
falls from an evergrey sky
we’re going up Wessenden
