The Dardanelle Darlings / by andy schofield

A day in The Lake District and a swim in Buttermere.

I swim to feel free
I swim to just...be
I swim to have peace
I swim to release

I swim for my spirit 
I swim to push limits
I swim for my soul
I swim for a goal

I swim for friendship
I swim for kinship
I swim for connection
I swim for reflection

I swim...its ineffable
I swim...to the liminal 
I swim to be brave
I swim to be saved

I swim to be fit
I swim to not sit
I swim to not give in... 
I swim...I swim...I swim
