Six Months (Weekly Decima Challenge #24 – Look)

Honeysuckle climbs walls upon,

A cottage a mile north of Corfe.

From there, Castle ruins seem dwarf,

Swathed in soft mist at break o’ dawn.

House Martins dance above the lawn,

Sounds like the perfect picture book.

Sat in the fireside inglenook,

Recall the wind, rain and frost bite?

Teeny windows emit no light?

Nothing’s as bliss as it might look!

  1. I am indeed! I lived in Kinston above Corfe Castle for 6 months when I relocated from Worthing to Weymouth. Lovely place in Spring, Summer and Autumn, but desolate in Winter!
