How lovely it was to unexpectedly come across a mini green oasis at the start of our long walk from Solothurn to Grenchen. The paths were wide and friendly all the way and although exhausted on our arrival at Grenchen Süd train station, we felt spoilt by the serene surroundings which had accompanied us all the way.
Solothurn to Grenchen
Rapids cascaded much to our surprise
Whilst hiking that Tuesday in March
They ran through the hills under sunny blue skies
‘Twas worth it to rise with the larks
It was so sweet to see little lambs leap
How the open land brought satisfaction
Toblerone peaks gave our old aching feet
A picturesque welcomed distraction
Wolf-whistle birds (made by man it occurred!)
And our couscous and peas needs a mention
As the years pass and the memories blur
I’ll recall Solothurn hike to Grenchen!
