By the lake

I found a charming beach hut

Down by the lake.

(A real Viking beach, isn’t it?)

The view across the frozen water

To the other side looks pretty too.

Further along, we turn up towards

The woods – and Simmie finds an old barn.

The warm colour and old timber

Offers a peaceful sight.

Before turning homewards,

I take a moment to enjoy

Simmie’s frozen whiskers.
