Rob Bristol is back with another poem in his Cornish themed series. You can find Rob’s earlier contributions here.
Have you walked the Cornish moors,
Stood upon the highest Tors,
Witnessed beauty beyond compare,
Scenes which make you more aware.
Have you stood above St Ives,
Viewed the bay on which it thrives,
Walked the quaint streets of Polperro,
When all around is warm and mellow.
Have you seen the dolphins swim,
Been to Mousehole as it grows dim,
Seen the harbour under light,
To honour those, who died at night.
Have you seen Luxulyan Valley,
Adding history to your tally,
An aquaduct from centuries past,
Through which rivers, flow so fast.
Have you sat upon Looe beach,
Keeping dreams within your reach,
Did you venture down to Par,
Could you almost touch a star.
Have you travelled to Penzance,
Or joined in a Cornish dance,
Did Cape Cornwall share her view,
Above the ocean’s shade of blue.
Have you ventured up to Bude,
Or watched the coolest surfing dude,
See his skill whilst riding waves,
Which rise above the pirate’s graves.
Have you seen Golitha falls,
Or stood by Falmouth’s castle walls.
Did you make your way to Fowey,
A painted bus stop adds its joy,
Have you chanced upon St Just,
A Cornish tea, remains a must,
Have you seen the highest Tors,
Which stand upon the Cornish moors….
