London Parks and Regent's Canal, Thursday 8th July 2010
12 walkers, 10 miles - leader Peter Buchwald

They met in Green Park ticket hall
For a sunny summer London stroll
Were joined by one from far away
Who from her hotel had escaped.

Set off through the park so green
Walked under an old triumphal arch
Stopped at a grid of pillars in memory
Of the seventh day and that same month.

Across the corner where people speak
The hotel escapee sought socks and they
Continued through the city streets
Crossed Regent's Park to Primrose Hill.

They found the canal gate closed
And walked around to join it further on
Saw some fishermen and made their way
To lonely Camden Lock at evening time.

They passed Kings Cross and Islington
Pretty girls out for an evening run
Some locks with tidy narrowboats
To the Wenlock Arms, a quiz and beer.
