BED & BREAKFAST

A very special poem...

I've met an amazing lady this summer. Her name is Kathy McLemore. Kathy is a poet, she lives in Scotland and we connected immediately. 

Kathy wrote this poem about us and kindly gave us the permission to share it on our website.

at the Wheatsheaf

in a slow-setting sun

we amble slowly along

as the skies of West Beckham

ring with bird song

I’m holdin’ the hand

of my best friend

ready for tea

at the Wheatsheaf Inn

 

 

an old stone building

covered in ivy that’s run amok

in a gorgeous setting

that leaves me dumbstruck

I’m so happy to be

with my best friend

walkin’ through the doors

of the Wheatsheaf Inn

the owner greets us

with a dazzling smile

she shows us to our table

chatterin’ all the while

I look over the top of the menu

at my best friend

we’re both delighted

by the choices

at the Wheatsheaf Inn

 

the food arrives

& it’s delicious

we share our couples’ jokes

laughin’ though they’re repetitious

sated by food & sun

I give my hand to my best friend

as we walk back to the cottage

& away from the Wheatsheaf Inn
