A True Blue View

                                        Brenda Bryant


Sunday morning in Australia; the starting of the day
And I see this charming picture as I look across the way.
I'm standing on my balcony and the world seems blue and white,
Lit with all the clarity of Australia's brilliant light.
It's just a modest cottage, 'done-up' with a lick of paint,
But the colour-scheme is charming and the whole effect is quaint.
I gaze at it across the street and wish that it were mine,
But it's so very delightful that I'd have to stand in line!
Add the glory of frangipani underneath a summer sky
And, when I say 'I love Newcastle', you won't wonder why.

It is indeed so charming. Your neighbourhood is nice. Quaintness is hard to find.

Love the poem! It looks so bright and cheerful there..I sure miss the sun...

Yes, I wonder what your house looks like from their
porch.... Not unlike something you would see in Amity Harbor (US). I like the tree in the corner - is that the 'frangipani' you mention.
