A pensive poem of awareness

Loved the lines:

Walked naively through the

Wow!  Is one of the words I would use to describe what I've just read.

I've also been to Blackgang Chine which is a wonderful place for the young at heart, but that was back in the 1980s, it's probably changed a lot since I was there.
