RDP Wednesday: Wanderlust

Balmberg

Lust zu Wandern hab ich schon, but my body does not agree
I used to follow the paths everywhere, and the sights were great to see
The sun would shine on my weary ways which I followed wherever they lead
But today I just look at the photos I took, and know I could not succeed
We saw the sea of fog from the mountain tops, and swam in its wonderful mist
On a clear day we saw villages and towns, like dolls houses they would exist
But that is all so long ago, long walks are no longer so possible
The steep slopes that mark the mountain way are absolutely not crossable
And so I sit and examine the photos and see how it used to be
Today I am thankful for the years when I could and reflect on it all with glee
Perhaps one day I might do it again, but Wanderlust is a thing of the past
So treasure the days when you are young and fit, perhaps they may not last

A Visit to the River Mosel area in Germany

Going places and seeing things is not something I can do very well today. Being a golden oldie with walking difficuilties, I can manage a walk with the camera where I live, or perhaps a drive out somewhere different.

However, last year my No. 2 son got married. His wife is from the Mosel area of Germany, where everyone seems to have their own vineyard. I stayed for a week and it is a fascinating area. Vineyards are on every slope and The River Mosel runs through it all.
