The River Cam


Late afternoon, and we are walking into town, following the river. I remark how the houses are like the Norfolk I used to know.

We stop, taking in the sky and the view of the punts and ripples on the river.

    That’s beautiful scenery, and mildly melancholy…

    1. When I was writing the text I thought about how syrupy the water looked.

      Melancholy – nice word for the scene.

      1. Syrupy water.
        Barely a breath of wind
        Or ripple of current

    A quite lovely picture … the last rays of low winter sun hitting those boats in the foreground.
