Lion at Sibury Hill

 

I had a date in Wiltshire

By the Silbury Hill

I was nervous and excited...

...a lion was sure to thrill.

 

There he sat upon the grass

His mane blowing in the breeze.

His huge head turned away from me,

He said, “sit with me..please”.

 

I did as I was told

And sat there quiet and still

I wanted him to look at me...

...a lion was sure to thrill.

 

And thrill he did with stories

And showing off his mane

Roaring, prowling, stalking

Whispering my name.

 

He let me stare in awe at him

While he spoke and shook his head

He told me not to speak of this date...

...so I painted it instead.

Chimp at Avebury Stones

I had a date in Wiltshire

By the Avebury stones

A serene mystical place

.... he said not to bring our phones.

 

It should have been romantic

Beside the stoney shape

Looking up at the stars together

.... but I was with an ape!

 

He climbed up high and laughed

And leaped from stone to stone

I wish I took a photo

.... but I didn’t have my phone.

 

As he danced under the stars

He looked at me and said,

“No one will believe we’re here”

.... so I painted him instead.
