Walk Report

Wimbledon Park and Wimbledon Common, Wednesday 14th October 2015
8 walkers, 6.2 miles - leader Peter Buchwald

We strolled towards a rainbow sunset
Red blue and gold above the roofs
City lights now obscured by trees
Sleepy swans backlit by golden sun.

Wimbledon Common revealed its charm
In the dark of a moonless night
A sail less windmill to our left
Mysterious roving lights close by.

A nervous walker with his hound
An empty golf club with lights ablaze
Mansions of the village passed by
Convivial drinks at walk's end.
