 A Walk Leader’s Lament

I like to ramble when I can
And wander many miles,
Of countryside, a fervent fan
In fact a man of styles.

When I was seven and twenty
Energy kept flowing,
But nearing two and seventy
I struggle to keep going.

Now I seem more prone to tripping
So I take a wooden stick,
And when I sense that I am slipping
I jab it down real quick!

I like all the lunchtime pub stops
Real Ale’s my refuelling
So when we all set off again
It is no longer gruelling.

Walks are planned out on my recces
With compass, map, I scout,
So leading the walk on the day 
It usually works out.

A long standing NWK group member, previously group Chairman and Treasurer
Also previously Treasurer of the Kent Areas Ramblers

Stephen received a rapturous applause after he recited the above at the NWK Ramblers’ 50th
Anniversary Lunch on 08-09-2013

Many members will remember our late Ken Purdell-Smith.
The following is a Poem composed by all the participants at the end of a holiday Ken had organised.

 
May 2016 Holiday at Coniston: Alma (with some help from her friends) penned the winner, raising £10 towards the Footpath Fund:- 

“Some ladies from North West Kent
 Walking with Yvonne, whose stick got bent
The leader tripped up
And fell in the muck
But was not a cause for lament”
