Rubik cubes & bicycles

Goodbye to rubik cubes
and bicycle chains,
to Devon’s narrow lanes
and warm summer rain.

Goodbye to sausages
and bacon, mushy peas
and steak and kidney
pies.

Thank you for the breakfasts
and the lunches
the pale ale
and rum punches

The lamb roasts,
swede and parsnips,
the trips to the coast
but most of all

Thanks for having us,
for being here,
for warm welcomes,
and warm beer.

For night caps
and road maps,
hellos and goodbyes,
tears in blurred eyes.

for promises and kisses.
Thank you,
until the next time.
We will miss you.

-Dave Kavanagh
