LMG TRIP TO TUSCANY
11TH TO 15TH OCTOBER (in doggerel)
by the Rt Rev’d Alan Christie
A couple called Agnes and John
Invited a friend, Irish Ron,
To assemble a few
Of the LMG crew
To fly to where the Tuscan sun shone.
Mount Sumbra was our first ascent.
(Tho’ some bikers at first caused torment)
We soon shook them off
And ‘ere long were aloft
And lay on the top quite content.
On Monday we followed John’s plan
Up Secca and then up the Dead Man
John and Rob raced ahead,
We followed – the Med
Lay below us in sparkling expan’se.
Our last walk, on Tuesday, was good,
Tho’ Ron, John and Robert eschewed
The easier way
For a route quite ‘air-ay’,
Too steep for this mild vicar dude!
Our trip has been touched by the bliss
Of good times we surely will miss!
From beginning to end,
John and Agnes, our friends,
We thank them so much for all this!
