STEEPER STILL

Up and down and up and down

Is how the road from Barkway goes

Like a rollercoaster ride

But without the gentle glide to end.

For at the last it climbs steeper still,

Hard pushed to find the strength

The inner will and distance left,

‘Keep going,’ calls a friend.

But there it is, the crossroads met

The old school and the post

St Swithun’s proudly opposite

Great Chishill; a while to mend.
