The old mill

You would probably walk right past this humble old cottage

If it weren’t for the sound of rushing water.

You’ll be happy you took notice —

The house is unusually tall and narrow

With marvellous old wood that speak of its age:

Three centuries in existence as the old mill house (Olhamra Mill)

That used to distribute water to the lands around it.

Nowadays, it’s a summer house

Where the owners look as if they stopped painting one of the doors

To enjoy the delight of the singing water.

Before following the bend in the road,

Make sure you turn around one last time

To enjoy the hidden beauty of this age-old jewel.
