A Walk in the Kilpatricks – poem by Christina Byrne

view from the humphrye gary mullen

(Looking down from the Kilpatricks to the River Clyde – by Gary Mullen)

A walk in the Kilpatricks

Onward and upward, my weary boots trudge

They said it was a gentle slope

To me it seems a mountain

Just don’t look up, keep walking

Your mind intimidates

You think you just can’t do it

Then suddenly you’re there

A tranquil stretch of water opens out before you

Its surface dark reflection of the lowering clouds

I turn, survey the vista, the scene before me

The river Clyde a widening snake

Slow flowing to the west

Christina Byrne (17 December, 1936 – 17 December, 2012)
