A walk through Spa Woods

Earlier this afternoon I took a walk with my friend Shanelle through Spa Woods, which is situated some few minutes walk from my home. Prior to entering the woods, one comes across Tivoli Lodge, built in 1830 by Decimus Burton. Initially it served as the entrance lodge to Royal Beulah Spa and Pleasure Gardens, though the Spa has now been demolished.

Please see photos of our walk and the woods below:

A number of my poems have been inspired by Spa Woods, including the below:

In the Woods Dark Heart

“In the wood’s dark heart,

The breeze,

Whispers in the trees,

Words that I cannot comprehend.

May God send

Me peace

And this breeze

Never cease.”

The above poem can be found in ‘The Writer’s Pen and other Poems’. You can get the audio book here for the UK and here for the US.
