Willows and Bridges

A stream by the path
With clear clear waters.
"In the willow's shade
I'll stay just for a while," I thought
But for long couldn't move away.
Saigyo, poet and monk (1118-1190)
The Kennet and Avon Canal near Wootton Rivers today - the most beautiful of early October days, sunnier and warmer than most of our wet summer. This was the last part of a wonderful walk through and oak wood and across Martinsell Hill in Wiltshire.
