The Cascade on the Rye
Who Am I?

This cascade was on my land,
In fact it's still there now,
Where once a grotto used to stand
Beneath a shady bough,
The walk beside the water here
We call Wendover Way
To celebrate a son so dear
But sadly called away.

My friend, James Peace, he also lost
A grandson in the war
For fighting brings too high a cost
For rich man and for poor,
So if you pass the water fall
And hear the sighing start
It's just the cry of one and all
From Wycombe's grieving heart.
