      SERENDIPITY



      (Dedicated to William A. Taylor-Fraser)



      When the insubstantial pageant fades

      and leaves not a rack behind

      of things that come and go in time,

      other than my mind;

      then maybe it can come to pass

      that I'll return to see

      such quintessential essence in form

      as the river Badgworthy.



      And like the slopes that rise and fall

      along the Quantock ridge;

      the mists that ring the Exmoor combes

      and the Barle at Landacre bridge.

      The misty paths that garland the feet

      of Dunkery at dawn,

      the solitude of Anstey plain,

      like Paradise redrawn.



      Where best to be, I think at times,

      in Paradise or here,

      among the finished products fields

      where purpose is made clear ?

      Such choice is one so hard to make;

      and glad that it's not mine;

      but would be nice, me thinks, again

      to come here one more time.


      Be then in no hurry
      to return from whence you came!

      so much there is to do on Earth

      which sets the heart aflame.

      The mystic path of life entails

      such wonders thus to see;

      and all the things that come our way!

      such... Serendipity !!!
