Bing, Bing
Where are we going?
You’re moving too fast
Remember I’m aging

To visit a lady
In the east of the Kingdom,
She holds more water
Than ten thousand rivers

A watering hole
You’re taking me to,
Losing it my friend
Nothing else to do?

Not just any reserve
Even her shape is unique,
With her long deep valleys
And undulating peaks

Lush with high rainfall
You can look from the ridge,
Lost yourself in the natural
You know it’s your bridge

Well Bing if you’re sure
Let’s pack up and go,
I haven’t travelled a while
Bing responded; I know!

One Love

Bing and I travel often, not so much as before but we plan to start again. Enjoy some of our travels here:
