To hear the birds in the tree tops
Or the ducks on the water around,
To witness the beauty of Autumn
The gold, reds and browns on the ground
Are a carpet of Nature’s making,
Such beauty for all here to share,
A smile from new friends in the making,
And knowing so many who care.
Warmth and coziness abundant,
Together in close harmony,
Full bellies, the kettle is boiling
For that welcome cup of tea.
No noise to disturb our musings,
The marina so peaceful at night,
The sky of dark velvet is speckled
With stars twinkling diamond-like light.
The moon glistens silver above us,
So bright, like a beacon it shines
Illuminating the shadows
Of swans swimming neatly in line.
The voice of a loved one calling
From so far across the sea,
The dog as she lazily snoozes
On the bench here by my left knee.
Nothing you could put a price on
Yet priceless to me every day,
To love and be loved is the ultimate,
There’s little more I can say.
