Quiet Corner

This small hotel can be found in the Blue Mountains, West of Sydney.


QUIET CORNER


A touch of Victoriana,
Though no-one wears a bustle,
And through the windows clear to see
Lies all the modern hustle.
'The Metropole', in Katoomba,
A little old-time hotel,
Where the beds are clean and comfortable
And the owner feeds us well.
Where time for the morning paper
Follows a breakfast feast
And the awful headlines fade away
And don't worry us in the least.
Up in the Blue Mountains,
Among the hilly mists,
We find that the past enfolds us,
And serenity still exists.

Certainly a haven of peace. The leaded lights are rather lovely with understated design.

Gorgeous shot, perfect for monochrome. Black and white enhances your little poem about this small traditional hotel.
