The Way Through The Woods

Ken Hill Wood, Snettisham, Norfolk

They shut the road through the woods
Seventy years ago
Weather and rain have undone it again,
And now you would never know
There was once a road through the woods
Before they planted the trees
It is underneath the coppice and heath
And the thin anemones
Only the keeper sees
That, where the ring-dove broods,
And the badgers roll at ease,
There was once a road through the woods.

From: The Way throug the Woods, by Rudyard Kipling.

Summer has arrived with a vengeance in NW Norfolk with temperatures in the mid to high 20's forecast for the next few days.
