On Dorset I (of XIII)

Hot foot from life’s race

Sat in sun under beeches

Heels cool in Piddle

n.b. Piddle or Puddle is the river that runs off the chalk downs of Dorset. The towns and villages are themselves confused: Tolpuddle; Puddletown; Piddlehinton; Piddletrenthide. The puddles are further downhill from the piddles, so clearly size is a factor in the naming here.
