Martinstown Mileaters – 18th August (with apologies to William McGonagal)

On a Friday in August the mileaters gathered
To walk through the sunshine and rain
We left Chaldon Herring and climbed the long trail
Through the farms and the fields and the grain.

The climbing was steep, but the chatter was loud
As stories of summer were shared
Our breathing was tested as climbing continued
And the clouds left some vistas impaired

But the sight of the sea was a tonic for all
A half-mile from Durdle Door’s glory
So we stopped for refreshments – a coffee and biscuit
And a chance to exchange yet more stories

As we crossed through the fields, the rain hit us hard
Then the sky turned from dark grey to blue
And the sun reappeared, and our moods were all cheered
As the beauty of Dorset shone through

Of the twenty-four walkers and four-legged friends
Most of us lunched in the pub
The Red Lion at Winfrith, who did us all proud
And were happy to feed all our club.

Some of the group had not been before
Though many were regular walkers
But if you’re new or established, we treat you the same
And it helps if you like friendly talkers

Poor poetry can’t really describe the day
That we started and finished together
But that was the August Mileaters’ Walk
“Great scenery - not so great weather”
