Poetic tribute by the River Wye
Poetic tribute by the River Wye
At Huntsham Bridge SO5618 : Gate in a gate, presumably in memory of a lost or deceased rafter or fisher friend.

It's no use you looking, I am gone,
we have said our last goodbyes,
It was my time, we did not fail.
I will watch you;
can only watch from afar,
my spirit forever part of the raft.

I was just the first to leave,
the first to cross that line.
in time each of you will follow me;
No crew is forever, others will sit in your place,
They will touch lovingly the crafted bow,
and laugh as I have laughed with you,
till our voices were lost in the sea swell,
on the outgoing tide.....
