I’ve never seen the Rocky Mountains in cold Canada
but I have glimpsed Goodwood Trundle.
I’ve never eaten a prickly porcupine
but I have tasted a crunchy cookie.
I’ve never ridden on a hesitating horse
but I have ridden a canter at Lavant stables.
I’ve never touched a strict snake
but I have held my innocent dog Inka.
I’ve never seen a fabulous firework show
but I have held shimmering silver sparklers in the garden.
