The Descent

MY WORLD

It's a hilly old place, our town.
Here's a view from the top looking down,
Through the shopping streets way below
To where Hunter's waters flow..
Climbing up to the top is a feat,
Hence the railings they've put by the street,
But it's always worth the climb
For the view to my rear is sublime.
Imagine you turn around,
And this is what you'll have found....
The Pacific Ocean wide,
Spreading on every side.
It's a watery place our city,
The Hunter River is pretty;
The ocean is wide and blue
And we're between the two.

Another view of the Hunter River here:

Lovely poem and nice shot to fit with it, a matched set.

Now that has given me your GPS location. I've wondered what part of the continent you were in.

Bet the view up there is glorious!

Sounds so lovely -sandwiched between Hunter river and Pacific ocean.

Poem was a good reminder to me. It's a long time since I went and saw the Bay of Bengal :)))
