Ammon Wrigley - "I Love the Road"

The following is a transcription of a work by Saddleworth poet Ammon Wrigley (1861-1946).

I Love the Road

I love the road o’er the moorland broad,
The sheeptrack and the heather,
And I’ve no care in the open-air
For neither wind nor weather.
I sing a song when the miles are long
And uphill in the gloaming,
In light or dark I’m like a lark
When I go out a-roaming.
I turn about when the stars come out
And o’er the hills returning,
I sit and smoke with the shepherd folk
Where the red peat fire’s burning.
