Our travels may be limited these days; however, poems and books can send our minds sailing away. So I’d like to share a poem of mine. From our chairs while we recline, let’s travel to Maidenhead, during the season of orange and red. I visited long ago, only to return with you in tow.
I have gone for a walk in a fairy tale.
I have walked in the pages full of detail.
Along the tranquil river Thames, I strolled,
Streaked with hues of raw umber and gold.
Where giant weeping willows grew along the shore,
With tender green branches cascading to the floor.
Calmly floating upon the still waterway,
Was a whimsical, white swan on display.
Onward I glided into the cool, gentle breeze,
Under the shade of some deciduous trees.
Through a town so charming, I’ve never been,
With houses and cottages in perfect trim.
Straight from the mystical fairy tales,
I strolled along in the glorious details.
