Salt Plain
Coastal Norfolk lands diverse,
Migrating birds from here disperse,
Such wide expanse yet private view,
The crowds of tourist travellers drew,
The tidal ebb the salt plain stretch,
A picture postcard here could fetch,
Yet now such silent planet sight,
Creeping waters in clouded light,
Retreat, respect the flooding shore,
Erasing tidemarks of afore,
Not once the same from day to day,
The wetland blue print washed away.
