Walk the Moors and Dales--By Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson--Canary Islands

Walk the Moors and Dales

The Yorkshire Moors are beautiful
Especially when heather blooms bright
On warm sunny spring days
And under stars at night
When twinkling in your sight

Dales that’s in Derbyshire
And in Yorkshire too
To walk they’re great
With scenery first rate

Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson is a coal miner’s daughter, the only girl among 6 lads.
A young mother to a son, she became a widow before she turned 18.  Patricia, then, married her childhood sweetheart who fathered her lovely son and two wonderful daughters.  Her children encouraged her to pursue her own talents.  After 51 years of marriage, she became a widow again recently.  She fills her time with poetry, helping others whenever she can.
