Environs


ENVIRONS
You can't get much more domestic than this homely little shot!
I took this from my balcony, a pleasant little spot.
A walk down to the left will take me on into the shops,
I walk there almost every day, with conversational stops.
The hospital is on my way, also the local school;
Just ten minutes in the sun, well, that's the general rule.
So picture me with my trolley, little-old-lady style,
Making-up verses as I walk; wearing a secret smile!
And here's the very balcony from which I took the shot.
Is it any wonder that I'm happy with my lot?

Beauty lies in peace and content in your heart. Seen in pictures. Read in poem.
