Description"Vividly, this simple, winding road I see, No other car, just you and me. Almost dreamlike, one might say Except it’s quite as plain as day. No need to re-define where we have been - Yet I search a map shaded palest green And parallel thin lines I sight They indicate a ‘minor road’ as white. And then to four precise dots of black Imagination they do greatly lack! For this is Carr Shield, which to me Is sweet Nirvana, and afternoon tea. On a blazing day, a sanctuary rare: Windows, wide open, invite in air Curtains stir, the breeze makes play The relentless world is far away. It is as if a secret pathway Brought us here this day And from that path a cinematic scene: A walled valley cloaked all in green. Upon that splendid stage I stand Silently, the camera pans around. Oh yes, the simple road to Carr Shield Does a most expressive picture yield. This poem was written by Norman Harris who lives in Allendale and was cricket correspondent for The Times. Despite retiring he still reports on Durham home games." Photo by Les Hull, 2010, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
