SK4163 : Reminders of a Blue Box day

taken 10 years ago, near to North Wingfield, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Reminders of a Blue Box day
Reminders of a Blue Box day
If I should stop, using the Blue Box scheme,
Think only this of me:
That there's some corner of an English field
That is, for ever, littered because of thee.

In that rich earth a plastic blue displayed;
A Tesco bag, and more,
The weekly rag
A sheep chose to ignore.

A good, green field that England bore, that
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
Is now but an eyesore
Created by a district council scheme
To recycle waste and keep our land fills clean.

This is a relatively small field and is the first to be seen from the western end of SK4163 : Locko Road (behind the viewpoint), Lower Pilsley.
