River Time is Different in Newnham, words & video prove it!

So this morning I could hear geese chuntering away down on the Severn, while I was still in bed. I leapt out and grabbed some clothes and went down to see them….I was more than rewarded with a wonderful sunrise, thoght the geese had flown up-river. Here’s a short powm I worte, and a video to prove that time is truly different in my part of the world! (turn the video sound up loud!)

River Time is Different

The geese call

I run down

To the river


To see, too late


Now out of sight

I hear them

A honking, jeering


Rowdy cacophony


The racing river

Seems to pause

When a leaf falls then


Floats away to sea


The church bells

Ring out the hours

I know this moment


Then the clock bells


Ring out

River time

Is different


In Newnham


The Film
