Keyhaven Track























Keyhaven through to Lymington

Along the sandy track

Isle of Wight in outline

Beyond the Needles stacks

Wildfowl in abundance

Across the marshes wide

Avocets and egrets

With waders side by side

Cries of geese wind-carried

Above the bending reeds

As all along the water's edge

The onward path still leads

Grey-green the flowing Solent

Ahead with masts abreast

The waiting yachts and dinghies

For now remain at rest

Journey's end in Lymington

Marina at its heart

And ferry link for islanders

Who live their lives apart.
