Just you and me
The story behind the poem
We live by the River
Thames in London, but we were both born and brought up on coasts (one
Ireland, the other England). We never underestimate how important
being near water is to us, it breathes life in so many ways. Maybe we
are so attached as we have only ever known a life near the coast or by
a river. The river Thames is a small piece of paradise in a very busy
city - it is also a reminder to all of us of the life it breathes, the
nature it displays and how it is constantly changing.
