A Zoolon aside: I took a few pics of the Royal Military Canal running through the town of Hythe just up the coast from me the other day. I’d often wondered what the purpose of the canal was/is. I checked out its history. It runs 28 miles more or less parallel to the sea and was built as a defence against invasion during the Napoleonic Wars with France (1793 – 1815). Work started on 30 October 1804. Digging took just 22 months but the canal was not finished and ready for service until 1812. By then the French Navy had been defeated at the Battle of Trafalgar (1805) and there was no longer any threat of invasion – which makes it a bit pointless, yet not totally pointless as the canal is now a great habitat for wildlife especially in summer when it comes alive with patrolling dragonflies, noisy Marsh Frogs and Kingfishers – not that I saw any that day.
There’s a new star in the heavens
I saw her with my two eyes
She’s going to outdo Mars and Jupiter
That comes as no surprise
When you look up at the night sky
You’ll see she’s wearing a flower disguise
That’s what the new moon told me
And a new moon never lies
‘A New Star in the Sky’
If she’ll have me, one day I’ll travel with her
Give Earth my last goodbyes
Seeking sanctuary like a refugee
In a new land, a new sunrise
Here’s my song ‘Calibre’. I hope you enjoy;
