1. Musings

The clink of goblets /Hidden plans in the moonlight /Whispers and shadows

Meeting at the Fords /Loud laughter and merriment/The creak of floorboards

A twisting stair /The tramp of heavy booted feet /Carvings of dark oak

The smell of fresh bread/ The clank of heavy tankards /The feel of crisp sheets

Odorous pipe weed /Voices raised in joyous song/ Long tables, wooden benches

Wine, love and passion/ Roses in rich profusion /Sweet tobacco smoke

Red meat and malt beer /Foaming tankards of strong beer /Clay pipes with dark smoke

Singing nightingale /Flowing fountains of water/ Perfume on the air

Singing and laughter /Hands clapping out a fast beat /Dancing on the tables

Wading in the meadow /Standing in brilliant sunlight /Drinking pure water

Songs in the moonlight /Secrets, whispers and mystery /Swift horses in the lane

Berries and cheeses/ A profusion of many cats /Hunting the vermin

Shelves of rough cut stone/ Drinking mugs full of amber ale /Dark and cold caverns

Sheltered by stone walls /Ebony twined with pure silver /Moonlight or darkness
