Mousehold Heath Defenders

Pat's Poem

On Mousehold Heath there stands a tree

That's where my resting place will be
Sunrise I'll watch in all its wonder
Feel hail and snow and rain and thunder
Sunset I'll see as it spreads its glory
Across a sky that's framed before me
And best of all I'll feel the wind
Blowing gently, my best friend
Or roaring loudly, wild and free
Yes, that's the place I choose to be

I've walked the Heath across the years
It's soothed my soul and calmed my fears
I've had so many hours of pleasure
Walking and dreaming whatever the weather
It's been theJungle , for the boys and me
With a lion or an elephant behind every tree
It's been the place that the dogs loved to walk
Also the place where there's no need for talk
But most of all, is its meaning to me
Its the place that has been , my sanctuary...
