A place for peace and serenity
"My Cottage By The Lake" by jaybird1
When I am sad or feeling low,
I pack my car and often go
down to my cottage in the pines.
It's where they come, those rhyming lines.

My cottage, lake and stately trees,
console and set my mind at ease.
This quiet lake reflecks the sun
and moonbeams play, when day is done.

When day is through and night draws near,
the words I seek seem to appear.
With pen in hand I eagerly
attempt to set their meanings free.

At night it's quiet among these hills-
Except for chanting whip-poor-wills. 

1980

Author Notes
My cottage is a place of contentment and inspiration. It seems to get
my words flowing. jaybird
