on canford magna road


We drove to canford magna road with rhododendron's on the way
the lane was steep and pastures wide hadn't been there for don't know when
we passed the school where kids did play and cuckoos chirped each day
out by the merley waste about where the houses spread their way
on village life was quiet then in days of lady wimbornes time
where zunners knew their place where toffs were mean and lads were lean
where farmers worked the land whilst bees did buzz amongst the fuzz
whilst children played their games down such country lanes
the cottages were declared with thorns of roses red and white
the bricks were red where poets led their dreams into the night
the cottage thatched and tall green grass with narrow lanes to walk
the talk was proud where willows bowed and chestnuts fell to ground
whilst gypsy crew from here to Poole made flowers fit for shrouds
the meadows sweet with berries to eat and daisies at your feet
where folks did pray and some did say that church is where you'll meet
the school still stands within those grounds and the village sleeps for sure
saved by the plans of wisdom's man though rabbits run for cover true
far from the shores of Bournemouth core just a journey up from Poole
the birds do sing there from winters to spring and summers play the tune
where lady did live and heart did give to bless the peoples core
the likes of her we'll see no more yet the village speaks its all
the Dorset bricks and common tricks of poets steeped in grace
cannot explain the heritage fame of guests that once did preach
the rights of man to understand the beauty of this place
