My choir "The Major Oak Chorus" went to Newstead Abbey, the former home of Lord Byron, to perform at a dog show. We found a quiet spot in the beautiful gardens and warmed up under the shade of a large tree. I wrote this little poem about it. Don

SING-OUT AT NEWSTEAD ABBEY
A glorious weekend in the sun
As families picnic, having fun
The Oakies warm up in the shade†
Of trees where Byron once had strayed†
And on a wall, where ivy clings
A blackbird sits and loudly sings
Proclaiming to those far and near
That Winterís gone and Spring is here

Must have been an interesting venue for a 'wee gig' - testing the air under the Oak Tree...

The numbers at the end of the above message should have been a smiley face. Donít know what happened there.
