Years ago, we settled down
In this lovely little town,
Which, and that’s beyond dispute,
Is as pretty as it’s cute.
There is something here for all:
Lots of shops, both big and small,
Nice old church and (yes, you’ve guessed)
Pubs for that deserved, hmmm … rest.
What is more, in all those places
We see lots of friendly faces,
So we think – and think we do –
It’s a real dream-come-true.
And our eyes can feast and binge
On the fells that Keswick* fringe –
Sparkling jewels in the crown
Of this lovely little town.
