Who’s my best companion for
An autumn walk by the canal?
Contented with? Couldn’t be more!
I love her so and always shall
She knows the names of birds and flowers
All of whom she’s prettier than
A mate with whom I trudge the hours
A blissfully contented man
Blackberries seemed past their date
But she is sweeter far than them –
Over bridge and past the gate
My love is la crème de la crème!
A pint for me tops off these trips
The gin and tonic loves her lips
Then it’s home to fish and chips
