Amber on the Thames

River Thames,  February 2016

I see the winding water make
A short and then a shorter lake
As here stand I,
And house-boat high
Survey the Upper Thames.
By sun the mud is amber-dyed
In ripples slow and flat and wide,
That flap against the house-boat side
And flop away in gems.”
Henley-on-Thames,  John Betjeman
