Spring is in the air

A big part of making the most of life here in Switzerland is donning your hiking boots and getting out into the great outdoors! Today on our hike from Ziefen to Liestal, we were blessed with a gorgeous Spring like day which really lifted our spirits and inspired me to write the following poem…

Divine February

Our jackets pink and tangerine

A premature Spring sun

A gentle, hazy valley scene

And how Swiss landscapes stun

There’s warmth and chill, and verdant hill

A cat, some cows and sheep

Within the air a new life thrill

Breaks through from winter sleep

A timely spot, and two snack pots

The sunbeams on our cheeks

We both feel grateful for our lot

And now and then we speak

A slight diversion, our new version

Sharp downhill descent

Delight in nature’s sweet immersion

This hike is heaven sent
