Hidden Gem

Hawkstone Hall

I saw again today

Backdrop for a TV show

Homes Under The Hammer

Familiar pebbles on a path

Splendid house and sky

Queen Anne red brick building

Cream as on apple pie


Ninety years a hidden gem

Unknown to others’ gaze

Only seminarians

Walked its leafy maze

Now a wonderful hotel

If you can afford

Relax and swim

Get married there

Breakfast or full board


To know and to be known

Celebrates our life

Smiling from my computer screen

My dear and darling wife

I knew you well

Your loveliness

Your character your charm

And you knew me so thoroughly

My beloved hidden gem
