Shrug-off your tailored urban skin,
depart for the nearest wilderness.
Use all your senses to enjoy,
mountains, rivers, forests and more.
Turn off the impatient, yelling phone,
close you eyes and listen.
You’re on a hill; not any hill, I’ll chose.
The wind is snatching, flapping your clothes.
You’re warm. You walked there with a guide
for the view; look now and keep listening.
Home of the buzzard, lair of the fox;
Red Kite land.
This is The Chilterns. Outstanding beauty.
My home and I’m grateful for it.
