To not wait for that shy and fickle sun.
Sometimes you just need to run
Not for a purpose or a goal
Just for the sound of your steps
Re-charging your soul   You may also like our Running Print, our Running card or one of our running coasters - all featuring the same inspirational running verse.

It makes the perfect Christmas gift for a friend, husband or wife and will spark many a happy memories of time spent walking and drinking in the fresh air. The poem reads as follows:  

We got lost in those hills and lakes, so lost.

 

 Forgot who we were for those few days

Lost ourselves to the pubs and the people

To the wind rippled water, the wide open sky

Lost in the light and landscape

To the whispers and the rustle of the season

Marked time by the width of a meadow,

By early morning climbs and slow descents

 Gave ourselves up to its simplicity

Walked, talked, eat, and slept.

Had time to remember, little to forget

Found that silly side of ourselves again

Dreamers, schemers, post children in-betweeners

 Imagined we might get lost forever

 In this little part of heaven,

 And its changeable weather.

You and I, lost and forever

©Steven Corbett 2017 This wonderful poem is also available in coasters and notebooks. Please also see our full range of gifts for outdoor enthusiasts including gifts for runners, gifts for cyclists and gifts for swimmers.

cycling gift print
Cycling Print – gift for a cyclist
Cycling Print - gift for a cyclist This fantastic poem has been written by our very own Mr C - himself a cycler. I think you'll agree that it captures the thrill of the hill perfectly (see what I did there? That's why I stick to the pictures!) Ride the winter out, ride the summer back, Every dual carriage-way, every single track. Ride for wind in your face, the sun on your back. For the hum of rubber, on a smooth tarmac.   Ride away the commute, the long working week. The voice that says, ‘I can’t be bothered this week.’ Why say ‘it’s a hobby’ when you know it’s a need. So work through the gears and crank up the speed.   Ride for the calm that comes with a one track mind. With another route conquered, another hill climbed.
