Lambs, A Video and World Poetry Day

21 Mar

We have watched the lambs in the back field with great delight today. The lovely Mr S took photos and I attempted a video in the gale that was blowing. It’s a bit wobbly and very noisy – you can’t hear the lambs talking to their mums – but I hope it will give you a feel for the experience.


It is World Poetry Day today and here I offer you a poem by a poet I much admire. I love his imagery and sensitivity, his use of language and, in this one, his reassurance.

Reassurance by Kim Ridgeon

    Nothing on earth more cheering than gamboling lambs. Thanks for sharing. Would love to share the poem on FB, if that’s OK.

    Watching lambs run around feels like being hugged! Thank you so much for this.
