Untitled -- Donald Monat

Guest poem sent in by Mike Lynd , who writes:
(Poem #1360) Untitled
 Lying south of sweet Northumber,
 Lands of Westmor, Rut and Cumber,
 Nottingham for forest walks,
 Durham, Derby, Lancs and Yorks,
 Leicester, Warwick, Wilts ahead,
 Fords of Here, Staff and Bed,
 Shires of Lincoln, Shrop and Ches,

 Worcester, Gloucester, down the Severn
 South to Somerset and Devon,
 On to Dorset, Kent and Surrey

 Herts or Bucks for Cambridge Hunts,
 Hants and Northants, Norfolk, Suff,
 Cornwall, Monmouth - that's enough.

Notes:  Rutland has now gone as has Huntingdonshire.  Americans will need to
be reminded that Warwickshire is Worrick not war-wick and that
Leicestershire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire are lester, wuster and
gloster respectively.  Derbyshire is darby and Hertfordshire is hartford.
[And Here in line 6 has two syllables, as in 'Hereford' - martin]

Best wishes,

Mike Lynd
