We are familiar with Comperton, which is why we like it.
It’s part of a nature trail and the village is about a mile up the road.
Always quiet, we have rarely seen foot traffic, but we had company our first night.
A mirrored sky in waters still,
Peace and tranquility abound until
A ring of music, a mobile phone
Dammit, we are no longer alone.
Five lads appeared with tackle and rods,
Set for night fishing, inconsiderate sods,
Disturbing our solitude, spoiling the view
Of a perfect sunset as sky turns darker blue.
With cans of beer flowing, and lines being cast
We go out to join them as their floats bob on past,
Some for the biting, spam baiting the hook,
A small jack pike caught, so we all take a look –
Big smiles for the camera phone, proof of the catch,
Not kept for dinner, but put gently back.
Five friends out fishing, until darkness fell
And they discover no torches! Perhaps just as well…
Clouds cover the moonlight as it starts to rain,
And our peace and tranquility is restored again.
