Dolfor Lock

The lock long since abandoned

The waters no more flow

Gone the hardy boatmen

Who passed so long ago

The keeper's cottage derelict

Its windows gaping wide

Poles of iron scaffolding

Bar the way inside

Canal that once so busy

Is now just filled with grass

A footpath overlooks the site

Where busy boats did pass

Beyond the trees the Severn

Heads towards the sea

There to meet its destiny

In far-off estuary.
