short poem about walking and why I enjoy it at all times no matter what the weather is !


I love to walk the countryside
With my dog at my side,
We do it every single day
In all weathers come what may.

Seeing nature at first hand
Making life simply grand,
Walking keeps you fit that`s true
Never feeling down or blue.


With cars and trains you`ll miss the sound
Of nature from the sky to ground,
Walking keeps you close at hand
Nothing missed when you stand.

My dog loves the outdoor life
Away from worries and all the strife,
We walk together all the time
Away from life`s daily grime.

We walk the fells and dales
We walk the hills and vales,
By lakes and by the seas
In the woods to see the trees.

I was born with legs not wheels
So I use my feet and heels,
Walking is a natural thing
Walking is the transport king.
