For a great Dad and Grandad - for the walks and talks, the kite flying and a real love of nature. For venturing into the forest and crossing streams in your bare feet! Treasured Memories Always!
Irene, Jim,Callum, Kirsty and Stuart
Extract from poem IF by Rudyard Kipling
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat these two imposters the same;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!
And another Extract from A.E Houseman
Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the wooodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.
Now, of my three score years and ten,
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy springs a score,
It only leaves me fifty more.
And since to look at things in bloom
Fifty springs are little room,
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.
Dad looking forward to some more "woodland trips"
