This one was quickly penned for a friend in Cambridge, UK, just to create a bit of childlike fun for both of us. Hope you like it.

The One Who Went to Cambridge

"I knew a man who went to Cambridge, in the radiance of the Light,

He returned again to All Saint's Road, in the twilight of the night.

A sister's visit on yon distant green, he gladly undertook,

And mental cobwebs he thus left behind; his inner garments shook.

All rust away, all worries gone, he felt again like Peter Pan,

A wisely executed trip, his timely master plan.

Fresh air; good weather, country-scenery-joy supreme!

No distant thoughts of London, in his present chilled-out dream.

Radiant sun and brilliance-light, now dazzling from on high,

No winter chill, no snow-flake dreams, instead a joyful sigh.

A gleeful spirit now his lot; Obama's mantra in his heart,

Such wondrous sight this joyful man, "I can, I can."

– Manatita 9th May, 2013.

      Loved the photos of The Backs - and the buildings, too. Interesting poem.
