950 years ago today the Normans won the Battle of Hastings bringing to an end Saxon England.
Finding peace for myself is so easy, For it's here by the water's edge, Amongst the trees and wildlife, The balsam, the reeds, the sedge. There's movement, song and silence, on the breeze, there is sweet scented air. From the flowers of waterside willow. There for me and nature to share. This gives me everything that I want, I'll take nothing from its treasure, Except memories of gentle things And a peaceful mind of pleasure.
