Resting between two natural panoramas,
Cool North Irish coast and Cheshire plain.
Thoughts draw on many memory moments,
Family shadows collect on the seashell beach.
White topped waves just never seem to leave,
Timeless features unchanged to the local eye.
Beauty lazily trickles from The Antrim Glens,
Oil paintings capture its scenic magnificence.
A revealing coastal roadway links village life,
Ulster white limestone borders land and sea.
In the distance the outline of Scotland appears,
Then further south the English county of Cheshire.
A county for all four seasons with natural qualities,
Pleasant countryside canals weave calm waterways.
Historical mills echo a fine trade with distinctive silks,
Cheesy grins on marmalade cats embrace tourist trails.
Walkers and ramblers find new pathways to discover,
Tempting ales and country taverns offer dining delights.
From spring lambs to hazy sunny summer sightseeing,
Autumnal harvests ahead of snow swept peaks and plains.
Observing links from here to there one sees the connection,
Friendly peoples and a warmly ambience live in both places.
