Unlike the much-loved landmark

That once graced Hadrian's Wall

Here upon the Mendips

A sycamore stands tall

Outlined against the landscape

Bright green abundant leaves

Clothe its spreading branches

Stirred gently by the breeze

Ahead sun-dappled pathways

And meadows flower bright

Grace the hills with colour

Yellow, pink and white

Tinkling streams flow coolly

'Neath bridges cross the way

Sunlit hours and beauty

Tempting one to stay.
