Lion and the Lamb (Helm Crag, Grasmere - 18th Aug 2011)

“Lion and the Lamb” - Helm Crag. (17th Aug 2011)

Up there so grand, you lie and watch,
Sentinel, paired eternal friends.
Like guardians to this fair vale, you look upon,
We listen to your roars, so loud at times,
Or suffer your bleating cries, with rushing tears.

Climb we will, your rugged plinth,
For intimacy some shall seek and cherish,
And touch and feel your toughened body,
Warm, cold, wet or dry, your silvery mane,
Such is the welcome of your high domain.
