A Pleasant Land


I often long for gentler climes
A pleasant land with pastel skies
Softest blues with clouds so white
Sunshine with a softer light
Flowers nodding in the breeze
Blooming over grassy fields
Meadows and fields filled with life
A tapestry of greens to delight
Fragrant hedgerows frame them all
Verdant vines dress ancient walls
Country lanes paved with stones
Little milestones guide the way
Grassy meadows with country stiles
Leafy groves to rest a while
Water flowing in rambling streams
Ancient forests abound with trees
Beneath their canopies
A place for dreams ...

Yes, and then, when you come to Victoria, you find it is not as good as you had dreamed! :-)

Giga said...

Przyroda, to wspaniały temat do wierszy. Pokazałaś to w swoim. Pozdrawiam.

Lovely poem, Dianne. It really is. Cosmo kind of took the words out of my mouth. I new a fellow in germany a long time ago who dreamed of emigrating to Australia. He actually fulfilled his dream. He had skills that were deemed beneficial. Hadn't thought about him in years. I hope he is happy.

Thank you dear J Cosmo , I am sure Victoria ia a beautiful place and I would not be disappointed. There are many countries that I would like to visit, this particular poem is about my feelings for England, though it could apply to the beauty of many places.
I have seen many images of the English countryside and I would love to experience the beauty in person ... one day perhaps.

Szanowny Giga , dziękuję, tak, jest tam wiele piękna w przyrodzie, aby inspirować poezję.
Ciepłe pozdrowienia mój przyjaciel.

Thank you dearest Foamy for your kind words, I am pleased that you enjoyed my poem. I have seen many images of the English countryside through friends and relatives, I would love to visit one day and experience the beauty. There are many places in the UK and Europe I should like to see, I guess I do have high expectations but it would be lovely to be there just the same. I don't plan on emigrating just a holiday one day. Australia is a beautiful country too so I hope your friend from Germany is happy here.
xoxoxo ♡

It sounds like the perfect place for my proposed development project. A cinema multiplex would be adjacent to the multi-story parking garage for convenience. I'd ensure that the world's largest indoor shopping mall would have plenty of nature stores.

Kunal said...

The Poem gives me a sense of peace and serene thoughts surround me! :)

dianne said...

Thank you for stopping by Pugsly my sweet but there will be absolutely NO developement projects, multiples cinemas, parking areas or indoor shopping malls built on these pristine landscapes...it is to be left untouched.
No amount of nature stores would ever make up for the destruction of this beautiful landscape of streams, trees, grasses, flora and fauna. I am surprised that you would suggest such a project, nature can never be replicated once it is destroyed.
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you dear Kunal for your lovely words, this place of natural beauty is supposed to have that effect on our senses.
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thanks dearest chickory for your kind words, yes a beautiful place, nature always makes the most beautiful landscapes. It is lovely to have you visit here again sweet girl, you have been missed.

I want to fly in the breeze on the green meadow and filtrarme between the leaves of the trees.
Besos.

That sounds like a wonderful idea dear Leovi , we could become one with the meadows and the leaves.
Besos.
