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
