Ye Olde Double Choc Chip Biscuits

On a chilly, damp morn in April
Headway set off for Lurgashall Mill.
We journeyed acros downs tirelessly until
beyond the mist laden vale we spied the hill

Home to the Weald and Downland Museum
a great place to spend our £5 per diems.
Bales of hay on which to relax
amidst the dusty, medieval artefacts.

A village lost in time with a ticking past,
its spartan, simple ways here to last.
Volunteers resplendent in yesteryear attire,
baking their flat bread by the vast open fire.

As poets on tour we were straight to the grindstone,
searching for sweet biscuits to set the tone
of our weekly verse inspired by the treats
that were found in the shop surrounded by sweets!

  1. A good old-fashioned medieval biscuit - did they have weevils in them?


Please tell us what you think about our poems and the biscuits
